The Rage of a Man Forced to Die has No Limits!
When a mysterious disease befalls young, virtuosic pianist Robert Dominici (Michael York — Austin Powers), he begins a violent, murderous rampage taunting authorities with his whereabouts. As Robert’s brain and body rapidly decay, Inspector Datti (Donald Pleasence — Halloween, American Rickshaw) must race to find him before he kills again!
Directed by Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), co-starring Edwige Fenech (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh) and Giovanni Lombardo Radice (City of the Living Dead), with Special Effects by Dino Galiano (Four Flies on Grey Velvet) and written by Gianfranco Clerici (The House of Clocks), Off Balance is an ‘80s Giallo-infused, carnal ride of violence and body-horror seen through the mind of a genius driven mad by a cruel and unstoppable disease. Cauldron Films presents Off Balance for the first time ever on Blu-ray, uncut and restored in 2K from the camera negative. Featuring one of the final interviews with controversial director Ruggero Deodato, commentary by Troy Howarth and Eugenio Ercolani, and CD soundtrack with music by Pino Donaggio (Blow Out), this release is a must have for Italian Horror maniacs!
