** Screening as part of the series Terrore Giallo! Italian Thrillers as Anti-Kyriarchal Dream Agents **
When the sleepy rural village of Accendura is rocked by a series of murders of young boys, the superstitious locals are quick to apportion blame, with the suspects including the local “witch”. With the bodies piling up and the community gripped by panic and a thirst for bloody vengeance, two outsiders – a city journalist (Tomas Milian) and a spoilt rich heiress (Barbara Bouchet) – team up to crack the case. But before the mystery is solved, more blood will be spilled. A ferocious requiem for centuries of patriarchal violence carried out by an anti-human Catholic Church, Don’t Torture a Duckling is an unshakeable journey through a landscape of rotting corpses and bleeding psychic fissures.
