3.0 out of 5 stars Dated and awkward but not without its merits 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Despite appearances, this is an English language film with no subtitles. The actors are Italian, speaking English, but have been dubbed and the dubbing is also English.

Also, this is not a horror film at all, even though it is occasionally marketed as such. Its even a bit of stretch calling it a thriller. It is more of a detective story / whodunnit. The police spend a great deal of the film interviewing the cast in order to find out who is behind the serial killing of some local schoolgirls. A witness to the first murder is a schoolgirl who is having a secret affair with a married teacher. Being a police suspect, the teacher also turns detective and interviews those cast members the police haven't gotten around to. The plot won't blow you away, but it is logical and surprising and comes to a satisfying conclusion.

Be warned that the murders involve genital mutilation and this is dealt with clumsily and distastefully. Even though there is no gore or blood and we never see anything horrific, it is the way the detective so candidly discusses the mutilation to a family, and how he distributes photos to suspects, that makes it so crass and ludicrous. The film also feels like it was put together by a dirty old man, with persistent and unnecessary shots of naked girls, be it breasts or full-frontal. Even the naked corpses aren't safe from the cameras voyeurism. Be prepared to be embarrassed if you watch the film with anyone else.

To be fair, it is no more than what you'd expect from a 1970s slasher film: The acting is wooden, the dubbing doesn't help, the dialogue is unrealistic, and conversations are often laboured and awkward. But there are also flashes of unsettling and imaginative brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars solange 8 July 2011
excellent service from company. However, it is not their fault the box claims to be uncut but is shorter in running time and obviously cut when compared to my video version. still a good addition to any Italian giallo fan. all i need now are DVD versions of the rest of the trilogy.
