Storyline

Diane is a photographer of the ultimate in trendy soft core. Her ex, George, who makes bondage films, hooks Diane up with the muscular Teagan in exchange for a favor with a well-heeled client. Diane asks Teagan to model in her next shoot. When Teagan turns up bound, gagged, and dead, a rough policeman, Lt. Arnold, focuses his suspicions on George. When a second model dies and video disks show up depicting the murders, Arnold is certain he has his man - except that the killer we see in the videos is a red-headed woman. Diane's assistant, Valerie, can't keep her eyes off Diane, and Diane's mixer, Paul, also tries to be her protector. Do the cops have the wrong person? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

You cannot say you were not warned
27 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'A Taste For Fear' translated from the Italian is a decent title and presumably derives from the rather surprising but brief bondage set-ups in this mish mash of a movie. As soon as this got under way, after the astonishingly daring opening, I wasn't sure I was going to last the course. If you love the 80s, you will be fine but for me the blasts of dance music coupled with music video style photography had me worried. Actually, this is so uneven that there is something for everyone and in the end I quite enjoyed it and its gialloesque features will permit me to add a very late title to my giallo list! So, there is SM, Kid Creole acting, Grace Jones singing, naked girls frolicking, risqué photo sessions, big men in dark glasses bending forward and back as they torture a saxophone, plus gory killings. You cannot say you were not warned.
