Splendid, lurid, even gloating, vivid, sexy slasher with giallo touches and much Hispanic machismo. Leon Klimovsky's last film, made when he was over 70, and with as much vigour as any of his many horrors. Indeed, one is surprised just how naked everyone gets in this and those ultra startling, daytime razor slashes. Not particularly original and although Agata Lys is fantastic in the central role as Norman Bates - oops, I mean Veronica, not everyone performs to her standard and some of the directing is a bit casual. Great setting though with super old mansion and lakeside position, affording us scenic views between the bursts of blood letting. Ambiguous ending might suggest all sorts of twists but the simple tale would not survive too much close scrutiny.
