Very curious
27 November 2006 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Here's something odd: IMDb has recorded an impressive 81 votes for this film, yielding it a 5.2 score, yet I'm the first person to write a review for it. I'm amazed that that many folks have actually seen this obscure mystery, but I'm less surprised about the lack of commentary: this is a truly boring film, with very little to recommend it. Granite jawed Frederick Stafford plays a police detective whose wife is strangled in flagrante delicto. Assigned to investigate the murder, he stumbles across a blackmail plot. There are a few dull sex scenes where the ladies take off their tops, a little bit of violence, and a whoole lot of talk. Technically, the film is shot with a distinct lack of imagination, and even the title song and score aren't particularly good. This Eurotrash entry is one big Eurosnooze.
