Great stuff.
31 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, this is something else! I had a copy of this Fernando Rey film that sounded worth a watch but it was such a terrible print, I kept putting it off. Now I have a sparklingly bright and colourful copy and many would wish that they were watching my old murky copy for this is not a pretty sight. Rape and murder to set things off, male gay rape follows and we are also treated to incest and a butler who seems to have a unhealthy interest in what looks to be a very young girl. All this while Rey, who is wheelchair bound, spies on his neighbour with some very sophisticated equipment and even encourages his 'wife' to go round so he watch them. Yes, its all happening here and I haven't even mentioned the very effective disco scene where we get the most exhilarating performance from one lady dancer who feels so much better with nothing on. This is part thriller, even a little giallo like with the music but is essentially a marital drama gone wrong. Nothing turns out as expected and yes things are even worse than imagined. Some have referenced Rear Window but I was more reminded of Michael Reeves' The Sorcerers with Boris Karloff and his wife getting far too interested in their neighbour. Great stuff.
