Review: Phantom of Death aka Off Balance (Italy 1988)

Man, ‘80s-era Ruggero Deodato is so batshit crazy. Stellar cast (Michael York, Donald Pleasence, Edwidge Fenech) and crew (Pino Donaggio does the music!) in service of a semi-nonsensical giallo about York as a professional pianist/part-time ninja (yes, you read that right) who goes on a murder spree after contracting the world’s worst case of progeria. Plenty of boobs, knives, black gloves, and confused Italian police ensue. 

Oh, and ninjas.
