Tom Schanley hunts for his missing twin sister whom he thinks has been murdered
30 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The IMDb rating of 5.5 is a good call, suggesting a movie that's in the middle of the pack or slightly below it.

It's an easy-to-take late giallo. It's also light on style, telling the story in a rather subdued and straightforward way. As in many such films, there is a murderer who wears gloves whom we do not see. There are a few suspects. In this case, I guessed correctly who the killer was.

Tom Schanley is a ranger in Yellowstone who has a psychic experience that tells him his twin sister (Niccola Perring) in Milan is in grave danger. He flies there but she's missing. He confides in cop Donald Pleasance who is sympathetic. They each search among his sister's circle of models at her Hotel Scala. Another model is murdered and another... Eventually he and Pleasance get some breaks.

A photographer is the one who explains the title. To him, the models have nothing underneath in their heads. He sees his camera as bringing out their conveyance of whatever emotion he wants them to give him by their look, but these emotions are unreal. There's "nothing underneath" he tells Schanley. He turns out to be quite wrong.

The story unfolds rather nicely. It's easy on the eyes. It's unpretentious. Makes for a decent late entry in this genre.
