Italian filmmaker Leopoldo Savona directed and co-wrote (with prolific giallo specialist Luigi Russo) this standard murder mystery starring Stelio Candelli as a criminal named George Darica. Darica discovers his wife dead with her throat cut and decides that it would be in his best interest to lay low for a while, so he takes his mistress, Carla (Patrizia Viotti), to an abandoned hotel. As they begin to become claustrophobic, George discovers more murders, one after another, and even helps dispose of one of the corpses. The panicked criminal soon begins to believe that he is losing his mind, only to discover a sinister web of lies and secrets which might involve his unscrupulous lawyer or even more sinister hands. Tom Felleghy, Veronika Korosec, and Fernando Ceruli co-star in this leisurely thriller with more emphasis on nudity than violence.
