Fabio Testi is as convincing as ever in the role of a gym teacher at a Catholic Girls' School in London whose flirtations with one of of his students put him in the role, usual for giallo leads, of both suspect and detective.
The movie rests on a solid script, the action moves along nicely between the well-written dialogues instrumental to the investigation and the brief, powerful moments of graphic violence which, however, never feel gratuitous. A couple of funnier moments also contribute to make the script's balance which makes this film a small masterpiece.
The Czech DVD's version has a has a pretty good visual and aural presentation. As often with similar giallo DVDs out there the sound could be clearer in some places. The only downside to this product is that the DVD comes with a unique audio track in English with Czech subtitles which cannot be switched off. Other than that, highly recommended purchase!
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.Read more ›

I regret renting this, as I'm a fan of Italian cinema, but not of gialli. I was interested to see Dallamano's work: I'd say he's competent, no more. Read morePublished 13 months ago by lestina
Quite a shocker for 1973, not for everyone, quite lurid and exploititave in one sense, yet quite compelling, definitely not a jolly romp. Read morePublished 15 months ago by william david green
