Umberto Lenzi Interview

From the recent Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival 2008 (BIFFF) comes an interview with Italian cult director Umberto Lenzi (Cannibal Ferox) courtesy of Wim C over at LoveLockandLoad. Enjoy!

One of the members of the international jury at BIFFF'08 (Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Film 2008) was legendary Italian director Umberto Lenzi. Despite a very productive career that spanned forty years and saw him working in genres as diverse as peplums, spy movies, westerns, gialli, war movies, polizieschi and more, he always gets associated with his cannibal movies Cannibal Ferox and Eaten Alive. For this interview I took the opportunity to talk about his gialli and polizieschi.

Note that this interview contains spoilers for Knife of Ice, Seven Bloodstained Orchids and Eyeball.
