Beautiful women save slasher flick
9 June 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

In many ways this is a fairly average Italian slasher pic, but it stands out from the rest by having possibly the most beautiful women ever to have featured in this type of film.

The gore effects are extremely unconvincing, especially a pathetic eye gouging seen and a head being smashed against a wall by a car.

Apart from the poor effects there are a few atmospheric scenes, a nice soundtrack and the dubbing isn't as bad as it could be.

Overall it's a decent film and worth checking out if your into this sort of thing.

I viewed this film on the uncut/unrated DVD released by Anchor Bay.(nice picture, although a bit grainy in darker scenes)
