a rapid sequence of sexy killings
29 October 2015 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

I am aware that when I see a Leon Klimovsky film, it will be at the same time, that little bit different from the norm but just a little lacking in expertise, or funding, or both. I also tend to expect to see the likable if unreliable, Paul Naschy. Great title and great pre credit sequence and we seem destined for a great little film, despite my reservations, but soon, despite a rapid sequence of sexy killings, things are become somewhat leaden. Scenes do not flow into one another as they should, stark dialogue seems unfitting and a level of predictability builds. But never mind, Naschy does well enough as the chief investigator, I'll hear nothing said against Erika Blanc who plays his wife (and gets changed into another wonderful 70s outfit every other scene) and in truth acts the rest of the cast off the film. All in all, not a very fine film but colourful and all action with just too many of those so bad its good moments.
