Bloody and sleazy thriller with Naschy as ex-convict and suspect psycho-killer
14 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Spanish Giallo in Italian style with Naschy as ex-convict and accused as psycho-killer and rapist . It's packed with fetishism killings on blue-eye women , claustrophobic sets , mysterious suspects , and rare characters . This thrilling film deals with Gilles (Paul Naschy or Jacinto Molina , here as Iberian sex-symbol) who seeks job and Claude (Diana Lorys) a beautiful woman with orthopedic hand offers him employment as handyman . Claude lives along with her two sisters , Nicole(Eva Leon) a gorgeous nymphomaniac and Ivette ( Maria Perschy) who is wheel-bound, . Gilles's arrival originates a terrible drama among them . The best friend of the family is the doctor (Eduardo Calvo) who cares of Ivette along with a nurse named Michelle (Ines Morales) . After that , on the Angers (France) county occurs various deaths who belong to blue-eyes and blonde hair girls , furthermore their eyes are pulled off. The gendarme named Pierre (Antonio Pica) to investigate the case of the killing series that have been committed by an ominous murderer and discovers Gillian actually is Alain Dupre a dangerous criminal , imprisoned for rape . The psycho-killer murders his victims cruelly by means of slashing , knife and axing . There are several suspicious , who's the killer ? .

This is a Spanish Gialli in low budget about 8.000 Euros and filmed in Navarra and Torrelodones (Madrid) . It contains suspense , tension , whodunit , plot twists and lots of blood and guts with abundant sensationalistic scenes and a Naif style. The movie has a bit of ridiculous gore with loads of blood similar to tomato . B-entertainment with a fairly suspenseful and horrifying story in which a killer series undergoes a criminal spree by means of slitting , decapitation and other brutal executions . Typical Spanish touches as the pig slaughter , the tractor and ordinary Spanish Bar , in spite of French setting is completely shot in Spain . This tale about a suspicious ex-con and a malevolent murderous begins well and grows more and more until the exciting and twisted finale in which we figure out the nasty guilty . There is another double version that packs nudism in charge of Eva Leon, Diana Lorys and other women , as there are gratuitous nudism and top-less . Lots of blood and gore and throat slitting in several images that impacted the viewers for that time . The film follows the Dario Argento wake from his early period when he made Gialli-classics as as ¨Four flies on grey velvet , The cat with nine tails and The bird with the crystal plumage ¨ . Nice cinematography in correct remastering by Francisco Sanchez and shot on location Pamplona and the mansion of Naschy's parents. Ample support cast , usual of Eurotrah as Maria Perschy ,Antonio Pica and Luis Ciges ,Eduardo Calvo , both of whom habitual of Jacinto Molina films . Anti-climatic and unappropiated musical score by Juan Carlos Calderon . The late Naschy was a good professional , writing, filmmaking and acting about hundred titles , mainly in terror genre. ¨House of doom or House of psychotic women¨ is written by Molina along with 21 screenplays as ¨Mark of Wolfman¨, ¨Night of Walpurgis¨, ¨Vengeance of the mummy¨, ¨Licantropo¨, among them . He directed 13 films as ¨The Cantabros¨, ¨Return of Wolfman¨, ¨The Beast and the magic sword¨ and many others. This slasher motion picture is professionally directed by Carlos Aured , a slick craftsman who directed all kind of genres, especially Erotic and Terror for Paul Naschy as ¨Horror rises from tomb¨¨¨Vengeance of the mummy¨ and , ¨Return of Walpurgis¨ . The picture will appeal to Paul Naschy fans and Giallo buffs .
