(John Phillip Law and Marisa Mell in Danger: Diabolik)
There’s no question that one of the more beloved movies here at Dangerous Minds is that deliriously kitschy caper film, Danger: Diabolik, Mario Bava‘s ‘68 ode to love, leather, Marisa Mell and…Marisa Mell. The same could be said for its somewhat hard-to-find Ennio Morricone soundtrack.
While uniformly great from start to finish, and full of quotable dialogue, it’s perhaps best remembered for its insanely catchy main title song, Deep Deep Down. You can hear Christy‘s renditions of the song below (in both English and Italian), but below that is one from Mike Patton.
Say what you will about Patton’s various bands (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle), because I can say very little. He does, though, do a fully committed Deep Deep Down!
