Movie Info

This delightfully sleazy exploitation film from director Enzo Milioni spices up its familiar Italian thriller trappings with a great deal of surprisingly graphic soft-core sex and one of the more unusual murder weapons in giallo cinema. Barbara Magnolfi stars as Ursula, who checks into a picturesque seaside hotel with her sister Dagmar (Stefania D'Amario). Naturally, a mysterious killer with black gloves starts stabbing his way through the guest list. Literalizing the Freudian symbolism that characterizes the subgenre, the killer's weapon of choice is a large dildo. The film features a suitably ridiculous soundtrack by Mimmi Uva, punctuated by the usual feminine trilling and synthesizers, as well as numerous close-ups of people's eyes -- an annoyingly obsessive theme in many European horror films. Indeed, the theme song is entitled "Eyes" and the Spanish title translates to "Death Is in the Eyes." Vanni Materassi co-stars with Marc Porel and Anna Zinneman. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

½

more softcore than giallo gore. The killer's identity is never in question, really, and there are some rather laughable sex scenes - like the diddling with the gold chain but then some other rather implied hardcore moves. The religious icon as murder weapon is not credilble, considering the damage it was supposed to have inflicted. Still, great locations, a drug narc subplot, and a lot nude females.
