Joe D'Amato Movies and Career Information

Joe D'Amato profile image
Dec 15, 1936
Actor, Director, Producer and Writer
Joe D'Amato was a prolific Italian filmmaker who directed roughly 200 films, usually at the same time acting as producer and cinematographer, and sometimes providing the script as well. While D'Amato contributed to many different genres, the majority of his films are exploitation-themed pornography, both soft and hardcore. He is perhaps most well known for his horror film efforts, many of which went on to become cult movies, and for his hastily-produced remakes of popular American films, some of which were featured in Mystery Science Theater 3000. The poor production value of many of his films, combined with his expressed lack of concern for the production quality of his films as long as they proved profitable, have led him to be labeled as "the Evil Ed Wood", despite D'Amato's apparently amiable nature. In his honor is held every year in Pietrasanta the Joe D'Amato Horror Festival, with the art direction of Paolo Ruffini.
