What a great film!!
22 August 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

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!!...
