"I am going to commit murder," intones the faceless killer. "I can imagine the thrill and pleasure I will experience as I stalk my victim. There must be no mistakes!" But when four trendy socialites are brutally murdered, an alcoholic reporter (a terrific performance by Franco Nero) begins to unravel a twisted trail of clues. Can this desperate journalist stop a depraved psychopath before he himself becomes the fifth victim?
THE FIFTH CORD has it all: kinky sex, shocking violence, stunning cinematography by Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro (BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, APOCALYPSE NOW), a classic score by Ennio Morricone, and much more. Pamela Tiffin (THE PLEASURE SEEKERS), Sylvia Monti (LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN), Edmund Purdom (PIECES), Agostina Belli (REVOLVER) and Ira von Furstenberg (5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON) co-star in this superior giallo directed by Luigi Bazzoni now transferred from the original camera negative in High Definition and available in America for the first time ever.
