_“Part painting, part tango, the picture is meticulous depravity and rapture, from its mod-fab tableaux vivant opening credits through to its escalating abomination.” _- Film Freak Central
Director Mario Bava’s giallo masterpiece! This is THE film that spawned not only the giallo genre but eventually the body-count ‘80s slasher, and mightily influenced directors from Argento to Scorsese to Tarantino.
An unscrupulous business operating under the guise of a top fashion house with exotic models running sexual favors, cocaine dealings and blackmail, becomes a murder scene after someone is pushed to the edge. The saga begins when a beautiful model is brutally murdered, and her boyfriend, a known addict supplying her drugs, is suspected of the crime… but is he guilty or is someone waiting in the shadows setting him up?
