It's okay. Edwige Fenech is really good, and the direction by Martino is competent. The plot is somehow more boring and more twisty than you would expect. I think this is because the plot is super predictable until the last 10 minutes of the movie, when all the twists happen (and they happen too quickly for them to be taken very seriously). Also, the film doesn't explore "the vice" very much - I thought it would be a more developed plot-point. Oh well... Compared to other Martino films, this one is better than "Torso" but nowhere near as good as "All the Colors of the Dark".
Edwige Fenech 5 skulls. Movie, 4 skulls!
An upper tier Giallo by one of Italys most underrated directors, Sergio Martino. We need more of his and Umerto Lenzi films here!
One of the better giallo with the usual good points and bad points of the genre. Lots of twists in this one.
