The Italian Rorret was directed by Fulvio Wetzl, a man who (to lapse into the vernacular) "knows from movies." Lou Castel plays the owner of a revival theatre, specializing in Hollywood thrillers of the 1940s. Castel is also mad as a hatter: he spends his off-hours murdering people he doesn't like. In the manner of the American film Fade to Black, Castel commits his crimes in imitation of famous movie death scenes. Unfortunately, once the basic "joke" of Rorret is established, it is stretched rather than developed.
