Giallo ultra sleaze.
15 October 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A group of decadent and filthy rich people arrive at the empty hotel where a deceased rich man lived.Soon they are copulating like crazy and the murders begin...Cesare Canevari's "Sensual Murder" is one of the sleaziest gialli I have ever seen.It's on par with "Giallo a Venezia","La Sorella di Ursula" and "Play Motel" when it comes to graphic sleaze and sexual debauchery.Unfortunately the film fails as a giallo simply because there is not enough murders and violence.Canevari filled "Delitto Carnale" with as much sex and nudity as he could.The film is quite erotic and arousing in places,unfortunately the action quickly becomes dull and uninteresting.6 sleazies out of 10.
