Directed by Armando Crispino
This lurid giallo stars Mimsy Farmer (FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET) as a morgue worker who begins investigating a series of suicides that she comes to suspect may actually be murders. Helping her with the case is a priest who’s prone to violent outbursts. Could his short fuse be because his sister was a recent victim - or is he the man behind the crimes? The only thing certain in this fast-paced fright film is that nothing is certain. The opening suicide montage, followed by a horrific hallucination scene, sets the story off and running down a very dark path.

Such a great film!! 5 skulls all the way! Wish viewers had a bones open mind to the Italian Giallo films! The music is more often better than most US films.
i don't know what other viewers didn't appreciate about this film, it's always been great.
Boring... No character empathy development.
You would figure based on how fast the first ten minutes go that this would be a quick and dirty giallo. But the reality is that this had no business being over 90 minutes, especially with how the mystery and plot go. How it all comes together doesn't work for me and the motive certainly didn't mesh with how the film begins. Add to that an inconsistent pace and you've got disappointment. I will say this though: the morgue scenes are not bad and there are a couple of scenes here and there that play well with the psychological aspect. However, I don't recommend watching this and would suggest finding a better movie.
Some groovy deaths... thin plot.
