    One of the very first gialli. Torso is a delicate murder mystery about a group of college students being hunted down by a serial killer who leaves a striped scarf at the scene of his crime. The twist here is that there are many suspects and the killer was the least unlikely suspect with a miserable motive. I particularly liked the tracking shots through the killer's point of view, but I must say the special effect was laughable, didn't really gave me much scares. The acting was average for horror films, to be quite honest, it wasn't too difficult to guess who the killer was. Torso set up the standard for the future horror films, it is a must watch for fans of this genre.

    Torso is a stunning, well crafted Giallo film that is one of the best of the genre. Sergio Martino crafts a violent, psycho sexual tale with enough shocks and chills to keep you on the edge of your seat til the very end. This is a brilliant Giallo that matches some of the best in the genre. The film relies on effective suspense, and like many other films of this genre, delivers the gore, the gruesome kills and everything else you'd expect from a Giallo, This film is a well crafted horror flick that has a good cast. Director Sergio Martino knows how to use the necessary ingredients to create a film that is chilling, perverse and above all memorable. I've seen a lot of the Giallo's and Torso ranks among the best. Dario Argento may be the master of the genre, but other Italian directors have made their mark as well. Torso is a stunning Giallo which has its faults, but has all the tension that is expected from a Giallo. The acting is pretty good and the film has good atmosphere that keeps the viewer on the edge of your seat. The film is a must see for genre fans, and it is a classic of the genre. Torso is well crafted, and has everything that you'd expect from a great Giallo. Sergio Martino directs a powerful,. atmospheric film The film boasts an interesting killer that keeps you interested till the very end/. Also the score is brilliant, and adds a lot to the atmosphere of the overall picture. A fine Giallo that proves that Dario Argento isn't the only one able to make solid films in this sub genre of Italian horror.

    I thought the second half of this film was amazing, and very tense. The first half contains just as many titties as a soft core porno, but adds very little to the overall plot. Sure, the killer does some business in the first half, but once we're locked inside the house with the killer and his "captive," the real terror of the film begins. This may not be as gratuitously violent or as explicit with the gore as other giallos, but you can cut the tension in it with a knife. :) Very well made and definitely worth a watch. BTW, the US trailer for this is amazing! The announcer saying "Torso: it saturates the screen with terror," along with the guitar lick and hacksaw artwork...oh, man. It all combined and blew my mind. Great stuff...seek this one out!

    "Torso" is a simply stunning giallo. Sergio Martino's movie has some genuine edge-of-the-seat moments, a very attractive female cast, a superb score by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis and beautiful cinematography. While some of the special effects are a little on the poor side, the film succeeds in keeping the viewer enthralled in the plot and its strong points far outweigh any minor criticisms. I really enjoyed this movie. It's not often that a film can keep me in suspense like this one did. Stylish, thrilling, erotic and gripping, "Torso" gives most other giallo films a real run for their money.
