Giancarlo Giannini turns in an eccentric performance in this average thriller from directors Ernesto Gastaldi and Vittorio Salerno. Christian (Giannini), who saw his father murder his mistress as a small child, takes his wife Helene (Dominique Boschero) back to the scene of the crime 20 years later, accompanied by his attorney Paul (Luciano Pigozzi) and his wife Brigitte (Mara Maryl). As strange events begin to occur, Christian starts suspecting that Paul is trying to drive him insane for the inheritance money, but there are different hands at work. This would-be shocker is well directed, but comes up short in the story department, despite some amusingly frantic acting by Giannini.
