Death Laid an Egg
DIRECTOR: GIULIO QUESTI
CAST: JEAN-LOUIS TRINTIGNANT, GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA, EWA AULIN
A far-out satirical thriller from the reliably eccentric and dazzlingly creative Questi (Django, Kill… If You Live, Shoot!), Death Laid an Egg is something like a pulp spin on Antonioni’s Red Desert, a mutant cult object which finds knife-wielding serial killer Jean-Louis Trintignant caught in the middle of a love triangle at a high-tech breeding factory for chickens engineered to be born without heads. Bodies soon begin to pile up, and the jazz psychedelia soundtrack by Bruno Madera struggles to match the madness on-screen.
Death Laid an Egg screens as part of the series Giallo x 3.
We've had to postpone showtimes for Death Laid an Egg as the restoration will not be complete until later this year, at which time we will reschedule.
