Audience Reviews for Femina ridens (The Frightened Woman) (The Laughing Woman)

Some guy who looks like a Nazi takes women away, toys with them, then kills them when he orgasms. He falls in love with his latest victim, they go to a castle and have tea with a dwarf and then she kills him and opens an art gallery. No more independent "giallos" for me, thank you.
