The House on the Edge of the Park 2

North Bank Entertainment, a production company based in South Wales, UK, has teamed up with Italian director Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) and actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice (City of the Living Dead) to develop a sequel to the his 1980 cult film The House on the Edge of the Park.

The screenplay will be written by Andrew Jones, from a story written by Ruggero Deodato and Giovanni Lombardo Radice. Produced by North Bank Entertainment, House on the Edge of the Park 2 will be directed by Deodato and will again star Giovanni Lombardo Radice as Ricky.

Giovanni Lombardo Radice Returns

Giovanni Lombardo Radice previously played the wimpy sidekick to David Hess in the original 1980 film, as well as the doomed teen/village idiot Bob from City of the Living Dead. He should also be familiar to you as the crazy Vietnam vet in Antonio Margheriti’s Cannibal Apocalypse and the crazed Mike Logan character in Umberto Lenzi’s Cannibal Ferox. In most of these films, he used the pseudonym John Morghen.

Says Radice about the new sequel, which would come over 30 years after the original:

“We are very excited, but very sorry that, due to too many bullets through his body, David Hess can’t be in it. But we hope he will approve of the project which will be somehow dedicated to him.”

Bonus:

The rather disturbing original (although nowhere near as disturbing as the Wes Craven/David Hess flick The Last House on the Left) is made less disturbing with this hilarious disco clip:

  1. I’m not sure I agree with your assessment that House on the Edge of the Park is “nowhere near as disturbing” as Last House on the Left. The razor blade scene near the film’s end is extremely disturbing.

      I remember the razor blade scene, Matt. I still think the scenes of humiliation, rape, and torture in LHOTL are more difficult to take. But it strikes everybody differently, I suppose.
