Movie Info

This voyeuristic story finds the wealthy philanthropist Sayer getting his weekend jollies as a sadist. When his usual street-walking female can't make the scene, he employs his willing secretary Mary to take her place. Mary dominates the rejuvenated Sayer until he has a massive heart attack in this erotically-tinged thriller.

Audience Reviews for The Frightened Woman

"SAW meets DOWN WITH LOVE," says Dave. "Egads," says my inner feminist. "Awesome," says the Mod aesthetic.

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.
