Storyline

Margarita (Lina Romay) has a threesome relationship with a couple (Sandra and Carlos) and pulls in with them. One day, however, the couple is murdered by a mysterious killer. Traumatic for Margarita, who promptly loses her voice. Completely confused, she is admitted to a women's mental clinic, where they try to get her back on track. This is attempted through sex, but also with mimicking murders. The doctors do not have the best deal with her, who smuggled diamonds for the couple without knowing it, but are therefore particularly interested in the diamonds. This also applies to the real murderer, who is perhaps one of those doctors. Written by lament

Wicked Women (1977)

** (out of 4)

The police break into an apartment where they find a dead couple who appear to have been murdered. Upstairs is another woman (Lina Romay), naked and unable to talk from shock. the woman is sent to a mental hospital for women where a doctor (Michael Maien) and his assistant (Nanda Van Bergen) try to make her speak and tell them where the diamonds the dead couple were smuggling are hidden. Oh yeah, there's also a maniac dressed in black running through the hospital killing the women. This Franco outing got off to a pretty good start but things start to go downhill around the thirty-minute mark and for the most part everything that happens afterwards is pretty slow and dull. The film only runs 76-minutes but it feels much longer. Romay turns in a pretty good performance playing the silent character, which she is very good at doing in most films. The supporting cast is pretty good with Monica Swinn also having a small role. There's some nice visuals in the film and the music score also manages to be quite good. The film takes place in a women's hospital so you can expect several lesbian scenes including the highlight of the movie when five women make love to Romay when she first comes to the hospital.
