'Another splendid gialli from the master of sexual intrigue'
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Another splendid gialli from the master of sexual intrigue Umberto Lenzi. Many say that this is inferior to his 'Orgasmo' (1969) but it many ways I find it to be of equal merit. Righteous lounge-core soundtrack and another winning performance from one of the true divas of gialli, Carrol Baker. Yet again, Baker suffers at the hands of a scheming; cock sure male; this time a particularly suave and dashing Marc Porel; a man seemingly born to wear pastel v-neck sweaters. His preference for Val Donican's wardrobe does little to mute his excellent performance as a Machiavellian, libidinous, uber-playboy, which is exemplary; making the twist-laden 'a quiet place to kill' a must see for Lenzi-Gialli-Baker fans.
