Cult Italian Siren Edwige Fenech

Edwige Fenech, the gorgeous Italian, raven haired, doe-eyed, Christmas Eve born beauty, has been a great contribution to Italian horror films and thrillers and even a few Euro sex-comedies since the early 70's. Her striking features have captivated European audiences for years and finally in the wake of her films being released on DVD (in the past 10 years) American audiences are being swept away as well. Fenech came out of retirement and got face time in a short cameo in Eli Roth's Hostel 2.

Edwige's wide range of characters varies from a damsel-in-distress, sultry temptress to a voluptuous villain-ess. In most cases within her roles the character is in various states of undress with psychedelic backgrounds and trippy music that was common place in Italian horror. It is rumored that Italian director Sergio Martino had a difficult time working with Fenech, not at her fault, but at the cast and crew around her, her apparent beauty would make the cast and crew nervous.  Let's give her a 10 out of 10 also.
