DEATH LAID AN EGG

Giulio Questi, Italy, 1968, Cult Epics

A total sensorial overload with an ultimate freak-out score -- think giallo by way of Ken Russell! Jean-Louis Trintignant (THE CONFORMIST) is a serial killer caught in the middle of a love triangle at a high-tech breeding factory for headless poultry. A delight for Euro-cultists, Antonioni fans, sci-fi-nauts and lovers of swingin’ psychedelia.

The first and only murder mystery to revolve entirely around a farm for mutant chickens, this explosive oddity has become a huge cult favorite over the past 15 years. You still won’t believe it either, as director Giulio Questi (fresh off one of the world’s weirdest spaghetti westerns, DJANGO, KILL...IF YOU LIVE, SHOOT!) spins out a gruesome satire on industrialism...while a knife-wielding maniac runs around, cast members drop dead and reappear, and jazz pioneer Bruno Madera goes nuts on the soundtrack. Abrasive, delightful and still one of a kind.
