"So Sweet So Dead" aka "The Slasher Is...the Sex Maniac" tells the story of a Italian detective Inspector Capuana who tries to catch an elusive serial killer entirely clad in black a la "Blood and Black Lace".The killer's victims are sexy and nude or semi-nude married women who cheat on their husbands.Our killer is a misogynistic slasher who enjoys stabbing his victims to death with a switchblade knife and throwing photos on their bloodied bodies.Along with Renato Polselli's "Delirium" "So Sweet So Dead" is one of the sleaziest giallos of early 70's.It features plenty of female nudity and some perverse murder scenes including one particularly nasty slashing on the beach.There is also truly bizarre necrophiliac character of pathologist's assistant Gastone.The cast includes Farley Grangers and some sexy Eurobabes including Sylvia Koscina,Femi Benussi,Annabella Incotrera,Nieves Navarro and Krista Nell.7 razor wielding maniacs out of 10.Feminists will love this film.
