Beautiful women, atmospheric locations, and gruesome murders
16 April 2000 | by barmstroSee all my reviews

A stylish Italian slasher movie, filled with beautiful women (most of whom appear topless at one point or another), atmospheric sets, and reasonably gruesome murders. If that's all you're looking for, you won't be disappointed, but the plot is certainly nothing exceptional.
