"Cozzi could be described as the Italian Ed Wood: the Spaghetti Ed Wood, if you like." In his latest film, Blood On Melies' Moon, the veteran director of low budget sci-fi twists and turns in a troubled sleep, muttering, "I am not the Italian Ed Wood!" as he is taunted by a bearded apparition.
This feature-length documentary about the life and career of Italian director Luigi Cozzi charts his obsession with Science Fiction and Fantasy over the course of his career. Spanning five decades he has moved from early collaborations with Giallo master Dario Argento, to his re-edits of classics like Godzilla, andhis Italian pretender to the Star Wars throne, Starcrash, starring David Hasslehoff and Caroline Munro (pictured).
