A typical giallo exercise in lurid misogyny, it does also affer hallucinations, incest, photo sessions, and more peach paint and lucite furniture than you can shake Miami at.
The film's sole original conceit turns out to be quite silly.
Serena Grandi gets a great English voiceover; and Vanni Corbellini gets one of the most ludicrous ones I've ever heard. Delirium is well-edited but the red herrings are so untethered to the plot, everything gets slowed down and sludgy. As Gloria, Serena Grandi is the kind of large-breasted woman Hollywood executives want to cast as an A-list heroine but decide instead to be covert about their prurience. The opposite of covert: A young neighbor in a wheelchair gets a free pass -- Gloria feels sorry for him -- to call up the ex-centerfold and and tell her explicitly and roughly how much he wants her body. That kind of male honesty a Hollywood executive can only aspire to. Frankly, he's a kind of surrogate for all the men in the audience ogling Ms. Grandi's breasts in the bathtub, and he's a stand-in for male hyper-sexuality, chained down to a wheelchair and glowering.
So-so Bava giallo that has some creative elements but overall just doesn't deliver since there's no gore, minimal violence and an unsympathetic lead.
