between thriller and giallo
12 May 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I picked this up at a second hand convention, only for the reason it was full uncut and it was a giallo. But from the first minute I was already left with a bitter feeling. The girl hanging on a rope was clearly not a real person. So i thought this wasn't to be what I expected from it but I noticed that it was well shot by the director Massimo Dallamano who of course knew his stuff as a cinematographer from Italian classics like a few spaghetti westerns directed by Sergio Leone.

This flick did have it's elements straight from a giallo like the black leather gloved killer and we do have young girls being abused and killed but it do involves a lot of talking too which made it somewhere between a thriller and a giallo.

The soundtrack on the other hand is sublime. But it's the story itself that gave this flick a bit of perverted look. It's all about 15 year old girls being abused by older men. And we do have to listen on tape what they are doing with the girls. But one scene makes it kinky when we go back to the mother of Sylvia (Sherry Buchanan) discovering that her 15 year is taking anti-conception. When Sylvia comes home she goes bare breasted before her mother and confronted with the pil see easily says, better that then giving birth to a child. The fact that she is already sexual active at 15 back then and is showing her breasts gave this flick something to talk about. Sherry went further as main lead in Zombie Holocaust (1980)

Lovers of the genre must see this but for many horror buffs this will be low on blood and horror, as I said in my summary, somewhere between a thriller and a giallo.

Gore 0,5/5 Nudity 0,5/5 Effects 1,5/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
