Autopsy (1975 film)
Autopsy (original Italian title Macchie solari, also known as The Victim and Corpse) is a 1975 Italian giallo-horror film directed by Armando Crispino. It achieved a cult status for its truculent morgue scenes. The Italian title translates as Sunspots.
|Directed by||Armando Crispino|
|Written by||Lucio Battistrada|
|Produced by||Leo Pescarolo|
|Edited by||Daniele Alabiso|
|Music by||Ennio Morricone|
During a rash of unusual suicides in Rome that scientists theorize are being caused by sunspots, a young female morgue doctor (Mimsy Farmer) is told by a priest that he thinks his sister was murdered, although he is being told she was a suicide. They team up to investigate the cause of his sister's death.
Marco Giusti feels that the film, like all films by Crispino, is a little slow, a little boring.
