This uneven giallo thriller from Lamberto Bava stars the amazingly well-endowed Serena Grandi as Gioia, a centerfold model for Pussycat magazine. Her co-workers are murdered with pitchforks and bees, among other things, and posed in front of photos of her, which Gioia receives from the taunting killer. A solid cast including Capucine, Daria Nicolodi, and Luigi Montefiori (aka "George Eastman") goes through the motions, upstaged constantly by Ms. Grandi's imposing pulchritude. Nevertheless, Bava's stylish direction has some interesting touches, such as having the killer seeing his victims as hideously deformed monsters, and the production is slick and polished.
