svg-play Trailer

A psychotic pornographer blackmails a married woman into becoming his sex slave by threatening to reveal that her husband is a killer. Desperate to protect the man she loves, poor Minou is forced to endure kinky bondage games until threats of murder force her to go to the police. But when she brings the cops to the madman’s house, it’s empty, and soon, Minou’s sanity is called into question. Luciano Ercoli’s stellar giallo references classic Hollywood suspense thrillers, aided by a clever script from Ernesto Gastaldi (TORSO) and a superb score by Ennio Morricone.

A psychotic pornographer blackmails a married woman into becoming his sex slave.

Why does the description say this film is in English???? I don’ want to spend an hour and a half reading subtitles. This may be a good movie, but if the people behind this app who write the descriptions can’t tell the difference between English and Italian…well, not thanks.

Loved it - great representation of the erotic/mystery/thriller side of giallo. I was also enthralled with the Bitossi horse (if you know, you know)...

The first act, which is pretty unremarkable, is domestic drama. The second, which is where it starts to pick up steam, is an erotic thriller. By the final act, it's a full-on horror movie. Strong performances, trenchant social commentary, a very sympathetic heroine and (mostly) strong pacing make this a good way to spend an hour and a half.

Wild, more worth the watch than I expected. Not super violent, description gives away most of the plot. Neat to watch a well made film from that time period. Less scared at the end than saddened, poor lead girl :/
