[T]he original Survivor set in a near future of unlikely fashions and pop-art stylings, where comic books are the literature of the day, murder games have become the dominant form of media entertainment, and war has been replaced by The Big Hunt. Full Review

The Tenth Victim, Elio Petri's ingenious combination of science-fiction and spy-adventure, marked the end of a trend. Ursula Andress, spies, and op-art decors have never been the same. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The problem for modern audiences is that the film is so fundamentally mired in the swinging silliness of mid-'60s Euro culture that the message gets lost amid all the gaudy colors, insipid pop music, and generally deranged production design Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- From the outrageous fashions to the less than hidden anti-media agenda, this revamped version of The Most Dangerous Game is like a retro Running Man meshed with a Cinzano ad. Full Review

The 10th Victim is plagued with a dialogue that pretends to be ironic and it's nothing more than pathetic. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Product Description:

Director Elio Petri fused science fiction with the pop culture aesthetic of the 1960s in this film, which takes place in a candy-colored futuristic society where the population's lust for violence is satisfied by "The Big Hunt," an international game of legally sanctioned murder. Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress star as the sport's top two assassins, bringing explosive sex appeal to the film. (Andress rose to fame as a celluloid dream girl just three years prior in the 1962 James Bond film DR. NO, which features her as the beach babe Honey Ryder. Mastroianni, comparatively, had seduced audiences as the introspective playboy in Fellini's LA DOLCE VITA and 8 1/2.) When Andress and Mastroianni are pitted against one another in "The Big Hunt," they find themselves falling in love while the world watches, each waiting for the other to strike first. A sleek, sexy, and often funny sci-fi adventure film with elements of romance and satire mixed in for good measure, THE 10TH VICTIM is not only an entertaining film but a veritable compendium of 1960s chic.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 20, 1965.
  • THE 10TH VICTIM is an adaptation of Robert Sheckley's novella "The Seventh Victim." Three victims were added to the title so that it would not be confused with THE SEVENTH VICTIM (1943).
