low on red stuff, high on nudity
One of Andrea Bianchi's first attempts to make a giallo and he succeeded in many ways. Maybe this isn't his most famous flick, I guess Burial Ground (1981) will ring a bell but this one is nowadays re-released on DVD and Blu Ray. An ideal time to pick it up again. It is in fact a giallo but it do offers a bit of sleaze too. The opening scene is already one not to forget and you know immediately what you will get from Andrea, nudity. All of the girls in this flick do go full frontal and in the most gratuitous way you could think. Due that it extracted the viewer a bit away from the story because sometimes it even goes a bit over the top like the scene were a fat bloke is trying to seduce a girl but fails by cumming to early. Guess what, ones she leaves he's going for a plastic doll to make love. Also in the beginning one girl is being taken to a sauna were she's being undressed by a photographer. She doesn't mind even as he's a stranger to her. Once she sees that his camera doesn't work they are making love, could it get more sleazy?
For a giallo it's a bit low on gore and even red stuff and that's were this one failed a bit for me. Don't think to see a Dario Argento giallo. Still, if you have seen Hostel 2 (2007) then this is one to see because Edwige Fenech, the main role here, plays an art class professor in Hostel 2. She's still busy in Italy in series and in flicks, but she did perform in a few Italian giallo's. She was hot back then together with Barbara Bouchet and performed together a lot. La Moglie In Vacanza (1980) the biggest one.
Don't be fooled by the title because there is no stripping going on but admit, it's a cheap teaser. Still, famous and loved by giallo geeks, for me a bit low on gore and sometimes a bit boring.
