A campy futuristic tale where people hunt one another for sport. In this film, Victim and Hunter run around Italy trying to score a kill in front of the movie crews they arranged so they could make commercials from the footage.
Early this coming year, progressive rock fans will be delighted with the release of the highly-anticipated new Fabio Zuffanti project, entitled “La Quarta Vittima” (“The Fourth Victim”). The year (2014) marks the twentieth year of musical performance for Fabio, so he has constructed a modern masterpiece whose magnificence lies in being the sum of the unique amalgam of his diverse experiences (most noteably with Finisterre, Maschera Di Cera, Quadraphonic and Hostsonaten, as well as numerous well-received solo albums and projects). “La Quarta Vittima” is an album of modern progressive rock gems, encompassing elements of symphonic, dark, jazz, hard rock, electronic and psychedelic, presented in a unique musical kaleidoscope.
In the not too distant future, human aggression is channelled away from war and into a government-licensed murder game known as The Big Hunt. Those who participate in this game must hunt down and kill five victims, chosen by computer, whilst being the target of five equally determined hunters. Fame, glory and some significant income tax concessions await the winner of each game, the one who manages to dispose of his ten opponents. For the final challenge in her game, the beautiful American Caroline Meredith is pitted against an Italian with a complicated love life, Marcello Polletti. She sells the rights to the killing to a company who will film and broadcast the contest to promote a brand of tea. Realising that Caroline is his would-be assassin, Polletti devises a plan to eliminate her with a crocodile. Things take a bizarre turn when the hunter and her victim fall in love with one another.
