Good but not great
26 February 2018 | by Stevieboy666See all my reviews

Inspector Peretti (giallo regular George Hilton) investigates a series of brutal murders, which begins with a man being decapitated by a large digger. The most graphic is a young woman being butchered by a buzz saw & the DVD case proudly displays this on it's cover. It is also uncut. This would have been very gory for 1972 but these days it is relatively tame. Probably the most shocking scene involves a nude young girl, full frontal. Plot wise it is quite complex and very heavy on dialogue, those watching it purely for it's gore will probably being reaching for the FFWD button. However the finale, when the killer is revealed, is excellent. Perhaps this is a film that would benefit from a repeat viewing.
