Legendary sleazefest that gives The New York Ripper (1982) a run for it's money in the grubby giallo stakes.

Although director Landi seems more interested in the kinky softcore fumblings, the few moments of violence are suitably nasty and it's hard not to like a film that opens with close up shot of a mans bloody crotch being repeatedly stabbed.

The film features actress Mariangela Giordano, who had one of her breasts eaten by her son in Burial Ground (1980), a levitating poker rammed up her vagina in Patrick Still Lives (1980), and who is here tied up to a table, completely naked, while she has her leg sawn off. Intriguingly these three films were all produced by her then partner, Gabriele Crisanti!
