Trivia

A re-edited version released in the U.S. was called "Penetration", and featured hardcore porno footage with adult-film stars Harry Reems and Tina Russell. It was advertised as a porno featuring actor Farley Granger, who was in the original film but had nothing to do with the re-edited version. Granger threatened the distributors with a major lawsuit for the unauthorized use of his name in the new version, and they subsequently withdrew the film from US distribution, but not from Europe.

You've seen it before, people.
23 September 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This poorly dubbed, badly acted, Italian horror-mystery is basically a retread of what you've seen before. Farley Granger and Sylvia Koscina aren't bad, considering what they're stuck with, but the rest of the film falls short. The plot concerns a mad killer in a town, and Granger is assigned to stop him. What results is cliche after cliche, way to predictable. Okay, if you like sleazy Italian horror, sure, then check your used video store, but most of us won't be interested. Fact: this film was released under a number of titles in America, so be careful. Also remember, the video title on the box is not the same as the on screen title, but it's the same thing. Not the highest amount of gore, either.
