A fine B giallo with twists and many a gorgeous actress, and not to
be found on any regular DVD or Blu-ray release as far as i know. So,
is another alternative market DVD edition, and probably a TV rip with
an in the circumstances OK picture quality.
With an italian audio and with english subtitles, and with some short
scenes without any subtitles, presented in some cropped widescreen ratio
(it looks like these films shown on some TV film channel often do have
a slightly cropped widescreen).
Gianni Garko (famous maybe mostly for his spaghetti
western gunman Sartana) plays surgeon Adrian Valenti, a man involved
in sexual relations
with many women. He dumps his girlfriend Daniella (a hot Paola Senatore)
and does it brutally. He shoves her and she accidently falls, hits her
head and dies. Then he panics and disposes of her body by cutting it
to pieces with surgical instruments. Nasty and obviously our protagonist
Dr. Adrian isn't a very pleasant person and maybe he's even a psychotic
But her older sister, Evelyn Graffi (Carroll Baker), with whom Adrian
also have had an erotic relationship, has reported her sister as missing
inspector Garrano (Ivano Staccioli) starts lurking around the doctor
and wonders why Daniella's car is parked outside of Adrian's house.
Adrian now has a love affair with his beautiful secretary Elaina/Lena
(Pilar Velázquez) but everythings not smooth sailing for the
doctor as someone
has seen him kill Daniella, someone who whispers threats on the phone
- yes, a gialli genre staple - and who blackmails him.
The nude scuba diving scene has to be seen to be believed, delightfully
strange. Could the clue be found backwards in time?
Recommended viewing for gialli fans and with the lovely
Paola Senatore and Pilar Velázquez in it, all actresses in nude
scenes including Carroll
Baker briefly seen topless. OK, but Garko is good too in a grumpy and
not very likeable performance, ambigious, is he the killer or not?
Also another fine soundtrack score from Marcello Giombini the composer
behind the ST to Le Calde labbra del carnefice and
Los Mil ojos del
