Belying his reputation as a hack (some say justly earned after Star Crash and Alien Contamination), Italian filmmaker Luigi Cozzi delivers a slick, absorbing giallo thriller clearly influenced by his mentor, Dario Argento. George Hilton stars as a greedy adulterer who makes a deal with a serial killer (Michel Antoine) to dispose of his wealthy wife, Nora (Teresa Velazquez). Unfortunately, a thrill-seeking young couple (Alessio Orano, Christina Galbo) steal the killer's car with Nora's corpse in the trunk, ending up at a run-down seaside villa. While Orano is making whoopie by a roadside with a stranded motorist (Femi Benussi), the killer rapes his girlfriend and then begins murdering people to cover his tracks. This is another one of those films in which all the men are sadistic louts, all the women are sexy victims, and only a somewhat daft police inspector (Eduardo Fajardo) can stop the madness. Still, it is quite well made, aided immeasurably by its cast and the photography of Riccardo Pallotini, and highly recommended for fans of the genre. Carla Mancini and Sydne Rome also appear.
