The folks at Mondo Macabro dropped us a line to let us know that the 1973 film The Girl in Room 2A is finally getting an official DVD release on March 27th. If giallo is your thing, you won’t want to miss this one!
From the Press Release:
Mondo Macabro is proud to present the official DVD release of The Girl in Room 2A, scrubbed and freshened up, with a sparkling anamorphic transfer from the film negative, new subtitles, and presented completely UNCUT and UNEDITED. This special release of the 1973 giallo classic also includes special extras to entice genre film lovers to add this special treat to their collections.
The Girl in Room 2A (1973, Italy, 84 min.), directed by American filmmaker William Rose (Rent-A-Girl), stars 1966’s Miss Italy winner and popular genre actress Daniela Giordano (Evil Eye) as Margaret Bradley, a recently paroled young girl who moves into a boarding house run by a kindly older woman. Soon she is terrorized by both the house’s creepy owner and mysterious red-hooded worshipers of Satan, or so she thinks. Upon further investigation she realizes that young, pretty girls are disappearing without a trace, and as Margaret continues to see one sado-masochistic, gory event after another, the sensitive yet voluptuous woman tries to tell her social worker (Rosalba Neri of Lady Frankenstein and French Sex Murders fame). But with no proof, combined with Margaret’s nefarious past in prison, no one believes her; and soon the impressionable minx begins to wonder if everything she has been experiencing is just a figment of her possibly deranged imagination.
Also starring Raf Vallone (El Cid, The Godfather: Part III), Karin Schubert (Black Emanuelle), and Brad Harris (1983’s Hercules), The Girl in Room 2A is a gleefully perverse, bodacious-worthy, spectacularly gory, and psychedelically strange addition to the bloody tradition of giallo horror.
