Torso

Torso

Directed by Sergio Martino

A sexy student is stalked by a serial strangler in this classic from the grand giallo duo, director Sergio Martino and writer Ernesto Gastaldi. Art student Jane (Suzy Kendall) becomes the target of a killer when she realizes she saw something that could unmask his identity. Jane and her friends set out for a remote villa where they hope to hide out until the killer is caught. Naturally, things don’t go according to plan. A favorite of director Eli Roth, this chilling horror hit laid the groundwork for the US slasher genre. Essential viewing for giallo enthusiasts.

Sergio Martino’s giallo classic follows a sexy student stalked by a mad strangler.

Cast: Suzy Kendall, Tina Aumont, Carla Brait, Luc Merenda

Torso is one of a handful of Italian proto-slashers that leaned away from classic giallo conventions and instead uses some of the features we now associate with the North American slasher. It has moments of great tension and entertainment, though the pacing is less approachable for modern audiences.

Fantastic proto-slasher from a giallo master.
