Amuck! (Italian: Alla ricerca del piacere, lit.'In Pursuit of Pleasure') is an Italian giallo film directed by Silvio Amadio.[3]


Greta, a beautiful blonde American, is the new secretary to Richard Stuart, a famous novelist who lives on an island with his sexy wife, Eleanora. Sally, the former secretary, had disappeared without a trace. What Richard and Eleanora do not know is that Greta has a secret motive for taking the job: to find out what happened to her lost lover, Sally.

Greta learns that Sally was accidentally killed in the heat of passion during one of the kinky sex games the Stuarts hold in their mansion from time to time; a hulking man-brute named Rocco lost control and strangled the girl. The bizarre couple then kills their butler when he attempts to blackmail them over the incident. All that remains is for Greta to be disposed of, then the crimes will never be uncovered. Eleanora lures Greta into a three-way private orgy with Rocco and herself, in an attempt to get the easily excited Rocco to repeat his careless crime of passion one last time.



The original working titles for the film included Replica de un delitto (lit.'Repetition of a Crime') and Il passo dell'assassino (lit.'Footsteps of the Killer')[4] In his book on Itaiali gialli, Troy Howarth described the film as belonging to the trend of "sexy-trashy gialli" opposed to burgeoning films influenced by the films of Dario Argento.[2]


From contemporary reviews, David McGillivray of the Monthly Film Bulletin reviewed an 81 minute version of the film titled Hot Bed of Sex.[5] McGillivray stated the film was "cluttered with preposterous suspects" and "ham-fisted attempts at building suspense."[5]
