The US version was re-edited with a new commentary Bob Cresse, and with an Italian word for title, Ecco, meaning "look here." To compensate in running time for deleted scenes, this release version incorporates scenes taken from Il mondo di notte numero 2, namely: Reno (Nevada) housewives enjoying a male body-builders' stage competition with live music from an all-women music band; San Francisco (California) body-builder showgirl singing a cheesy song and ripping up a phone book; Los Angeles (California) Roller Derby's women teams; Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Mardi Gras Carnival; Nyeri (Kenya) photographic safari at the Nyeri Game Reserve; Nairobi (Kenya) Samburu people perform a traditional dance, and then join with tourists dancing the twist; Okayama (Japan) young men Saidachi Festival.

Weird concoction of rituals, religions & customs...
1st watched 1/20/2003 - 2 out of 10(Dir-Gianni Proia): Weird concoction of rituals, religions & customs held in many different parts of the world that I believe is intended to shock you. This it does, but I couldn't figure out the connections or the reason for the Italian filmmaker to make something like this. There is a variety of strange human rituals including women in Las Vegas gauking over muscle-bound men to women performing castration by teeth on reindeer in the northern Icelands and then getting married to men who choose them after this is done. I could go on and on but it's not really needed. If your idea of a good time is watching naked Japanese men trouncing each other for the sake of a possible good year according to their priests or seeing chicken-blood being spattered on a naked woman as part of a satatic ritual then by all means watch this movie. For others who just want entertained and not disgusted, stay away from this.
