Cautionary gore
7 September 2015 | by melvelvit-1See all my reviews

A criminology major (Mariangela D'Abbraccio), doing thesis research on a series of lover's lane sex murders, plunges into a dangerous world of perverts and voyeurs but the killer may be much closer to home...

Seasoned Eurotrash screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi turned the still unsolved "Monster Of Florence" murders into a pretty good giallo full of suspense, paranoia, and graphic set-piece slaying. The grisly mutilations and jump scares that make late gialli like GIALLO A VENEZIA and THE NEW YORK RIPPER such sleazy fun are here as well and there's even a bit of the supernatural going on with a séance medium seeing a double murder as it happens. Something kept nagging at me, tho- when "Son of Sam" terrorized the NYC area in the summer of '77, we wouldn't be caught dead in a lover's lane but in this movie it's a popular extra- curricular activity at the college regardless of the fact there's a killer loose. But what are you gonna do, the young like it hot, I suppose, and the real Il Mostro (who sliced off female body parts and mailed them to the police like Jack The Ripper) killed 8 couples which means 7 of 'em courted disaster by paying no mind to what was happening in the world around them. The end credits said the film was made "to warn young people" and maybe it was but the movie obviously pandered to gore-hounds, as well. And did a good job of it, too.
