Alternate Versions

The 2004 DVD R1 release finds the movie running longer than any other copy but suffers from a minute of faulty audio (over a murder sequence) and two scenes featuring Rosalba Neri have been presented in their tamer 'clothed' takes, while the rest of the film's racy scenes are taken from the 'unclothed' variants. This DVD also includes some soft core inserts. The old US Gorgon video tapes have the unclothed Neri footage missing from the DVD. The new R2 DVD is missing the greenhouse seduction. See more »

Italian horror fans sick dream come true
15 July 2002 | by horrorbargainbinSee all my reviews

Reminds me of less complicated Italian slashers like Bava's 'Bay of Blood'. This film sticks primarily to sex and blood. The plot is unimportant, but easy to pay attention to since it's so sexual in bizarre ways. Flashbacks re-cap all the suggestion you might miss.

Tons of nudity and weapons. It lacks some of the mystery of the Italian greats, but I can't imagine fans not having a blast watching.
