Lousy Euro drug movie
4 September 2014 | by jrd_73See all my reviews

I watched Percy Is Killed for the actress Leonora Fani, who was gorgeous in Fear Hotel and Kyra. Here, she has a supporting role playing a drug addict, hooked on the needle by the main character. True to her role, the actress looks like she has not bathed in a week. Although she does take off her clothes, the sight is not one meant to inspire eroticism.

The main plot has a rich loser forsaking his bourgeoisie upbringing, his wife, and his child for dope. The loser falls in with some mean addicts, led by Luciano Rossi, that blonde twitchy guy who frequently appears in Eurotrash movies (Death Smiles on a Murderer, Death Walks at Midnight). Percy Is Killed is a slow, obvious story headed by a lead character who is nearly impossible to empathize with. A few oddball hallucination scenes offer mild distraction. By the way, what is the meaning of the nude black man playing a trumpet? Do junkies actually see things like that?
