Luciano Ercoli 1929 - 2015

It’s with great sadness that we have learned Italian director Luciano Ercoli has died aged 85.

Famous on the horror scene for his trio of fabulous giallo films – DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS, DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT and FORBIDDEN PHOTOS OF A LADY ABOVE SUSPICION, his flair and style covered other genres such as crime films, and westerns as a producer.

STARBURST covered his giallo movies in Horror Obscura in issue 397 as they are criminally underappreciated.  
He married actor Nieves Navarro, who starred in many of his films under the name Susan Scott, in 1972.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
