4.0 out of 5 stars What have they done to your Daughters?, 20 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Have They Done To Your Daughters? [1974] [DVD] (DVD)
After a teenage school girl is found murdered, a police inspector (Claudio Cassinelli) becomes determined to find who is responsible but what he finds is something far worse than he could have ever imagined, a group of young girls been forced into prostitution by a assembly of rich and highly influential businessmen.

After reading the reviews for this film I was determined to watch this and have my own say. In my opinion this is a great entry into the Giallo genre. What I found different with this Giallo is that the killer isn't someone who we have seen earlier in the film, his character doesn't have the hidden identity we are eager to discover but it is the identity of those behind the prostitution ring we what to uncover.

The film features as usual alot of violent killings all been carried out by the tradition man in black, but I found this particular killer alot more threatening than the usual killer as he is shown on screen in every murder and not the usual over used hand held POV shot which I can find makes films alot more cheesy when they are used to much.

The acting seems nothing special but I think thats down to the terrible dumbing but I was impressed by the performance from Giovanna Ralli as the District Attorney Vittoria Stori who helps Inspector Silvestri (Claudio Cassinelli) solve the case. I also liked the fact that there was no sexual relationship between the two as it becomes rather boring after seeing it in almost every Giallo ive ever seen. Theres a great score by Stelvio Cipriani and one of the themes used over some of the more tense conversation scenes is one of my favourite pieces of music ever used in a Giallo.

Overall this is top rate film/DVD that I would Recommend people buy.
