The glove, the knife, and the tatas.
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They say to never look a gift horse in the mouth. Sometimes a gift isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Andrea (George Hilton) offers an upscale apartment to models Jennifer (Edwige Fenech) and Marilyn (Paola Quattrini). The only problem is that a stripper Mizar (Carla Brait) was just drowned in the bathtub, and someone is in the apartment with evil intentions on Jennifer's first night there. In addition another girl in the building was murdered in the elevator the day before. Is this where you really want to live? This film has a huge assortment of odd characters: a lesbian that lives with her professor father who plays the violin all night, an old lady that reads horror comics, Jennifer's ex who is head of some sex cult, and even a police lieutenant (Giampiero Albertini) who collects stamps and swipes them from crime scenes. No shortage of suspects.

But, discovering the killer and the motive will prove elusive. That's OK, as the music, and the humor, and seeing Fenech will certainly keep you occupied until the reveal.
