This kinky thriller stars Barbara Bouchet as a secretary who comes to the swampland home of writer Richard Stewart (Farley Granger) and his wife Eleonor (Rosalba Neri). Her predecessor was murdered by a local fisherman-rapist (Dino Mele), but there's more to the story than meets the eye, and Bouchet soon finds herself in mortal danger. Typical of the genre, the film is full of nudity and violence, as well as some deftly-handled red herrings. Umberto Raho shows up as the butler, who gets a gaffing hook rammed through his neck for good measure. Director Silvio Amadio has crafted a sick, scary, entertaining little film which will please most Euro-thriller fans. Amadio went on to make the even better Il Sorriso Della Iena, also with Neri.
