Joe D'Amato (born Aristide Massaccesi; 15 December 1936 23 January 1999) was an Italian cult filmmaker, chiefly of horror and erotic films. He was incredibly prolific, by some counts the most prolific Italian director of all time, with an estimated 200 directorial credits between 1972 and 1999.

Much like Jess Franco, D'Amato's credits were quite eclectic, running the gamut from director, producer, cinematographer, screenwriter, and editor. Starting in the 1980s, he took to directing pornographic films, credited under a number of different pseudonyms.
