An ex-convict, troubled by dreams that he strangles women, is hired as the caretaker on an estate owned by three very strange sisters. Soon after his arrival, a serial killer begins slaughtering blonde, blue-eyed women - and leaving their eyeballs in a bowl of water. Written by
Well, at last I´ve been able to watch this film thanks to a very good friend of mine, and I must say it´s brilliant.
This film contains all the elements, characters and situations that make a "giallo" come to life. It could have been directed perfectly by the Italian masters Argento or Fulci at that time.
Paul Naschy´s character is splendid, and the three beautiful sisters involved in the story are fine too.
As it usually happens with the good films of this kind, you won´t be able to find out who is the vicious killer until the end. I promise I didn´t guess... and that´s good. That means the script is well-written.
So my congratulations to Paul Naschy and Carlos Aured who really did a great job with this film!.
If you liked "The bird with the crystal plumage", "Don´t torture a duckling", "4 flies on grey velvet", etc. you´ll enjoy this one just the same.
Even the title is great, the Italian way!!...
