Style over everything else.
8 December 2010 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

And I do mean EVERYTHING else.

A great looking film in all aspects.

Brilliant camera work. Excellent use of color. The cinematography and art direction were Oscar worthy and everybody in it looked great. The majority of them proving it by getting naked.

Beautiful models get bumped off by a killer whose face becomes a giant eye before the kill. The sudden rush of colors signifies that a murder is coming. Said models work for a magazine that our heroine (A former model herself) runs.

Of course now she thinks she's the final target. Is she? If you can find this gem, see it.

I found this in a used video box in Tokyo and was sucked in but the cover art. Seeing Bava's name helped too.

It's a bit dated now, it reminds one of an 80's music video at times. But the mystery element is great and never lets up.
