The film kicks off with a murder followed by a suicide.
After a brief introduction to some of the residents and key characters of the thinly populated bay, a group
of teens arrive at the lakeside location for some recreational fun-time.
From the moment they arrive you become aware that they are being watched.
The story though is centered around the chase to claim the murdered Countess's legacy, wealth enough
to kill for.
Meanwhile the fun loving teens start to become the victims of the killing spree very quickly.
In truth there are many suspects to choose from as the story and killings continue, and the body count mounts
The victims all have a bloody end as the possible estate claimants become fewer,the film does have a satisfying
twist at the end.
An Italian made movie pretty typical of the material that was being turned out by both European and American
film makers during the early 70's into the early 80's.
Some pretty graphic killings but in truth little tension, the script and story-line perhaps a little thin.
Okay for a one-off viewing.
The Blu-ray upgrade is good with the close-up scenes, a little grainy on the distance shots.
The film does have many features along with a booklet.
