| Bad luck streak at dancing school.
Enhanced,so to speak,by a horrible neodisco soundtrack by Cerrone,"Dancing machine" is a disaster,although the place -a dancing school-is an usually place for a thriller,the first one since Argento's "Suspiria"(1976)A former dancer (Delon) and his henchman (a sullen Patrick Dupont ,a danseur étoile)are making all it rough for their students,like the harshest of drill sergeants.Some of their (female) dancers mysteriously die ,and it might be crimes.

The plot has nothing to recommend it yet:the killer's identity is so implausible,so illogical,so far-fetched that it ruins absolutely everything which came before -which was not much anyway,unless the numerous (all female)nudities count.

"He was certainly insane" says the cop :always the easy way out when you cannot bring a killer's motives .The authors of the movie were too.
