disturbed painter named Richard Streeb
(Mony Damensky) creates macabre paintings
which creates a huge sensation. Then one
dark night someone is dressed in black
and kills him or so people might think to
give Richard a taste of his own medicine.
Richard's body has vanished and everyone
is labeled a suspect including his
estranged brother Bill (Joe Zaso) as he
investigates the unsolved murderer while
having an affair with his sister in law
Gloria (Liz Haverty).
encounters a bunch of perverts,
prostitutes and psychopaths and even gets
drugged at a cafe then has a bizarre
Bill does meet up with the killer as the
killer has slaughtered many other
suspects but it's not what Bill thinks.
The beginning of the film looked
pointless and extremely bland with a
murderous scene in the shower. Also there's an art museum scene as it
looks way too acted out of course this is
due to bad dubbing.
There is a moment on the character Gloria Streeb when she falls to the
ground when her husband is
murdered which looks effective in the story as well as with the
camera shot on him as well as experiencing this tragedy that the woman has when she spots this.
There's a nice dialogue
between the characters Gloria and Inspector Andez about the questioning on the
murder case in which this looked and fairly strong watching this moment happen.
There's a nice and calm scene with Bill Streeb and Gloria together outside in
a patio near a forest with the sun shining on them leaving it a nice touch to the story.
A dialogue between Bill and
a professor looked quite corny to watch in a study mansion
when Bill tries to
get information from him.
We see a very twisted moment with Bill when he is in a cafe and a strange
poetry is happening there and then goes
into a hallucination as there's colorful
effects to the picture when this happens
which looks well done but extremely
Next there's a mysterious and gothic like
dialogue between Bill and
a mysterious character Rosie giving
the film a nice little touch as the makers of the film makes it look good in every way.
There's perfect camera shots on Bill and Gloria performing a sex
scene together as well as something a little terrifying afterwards in which seems to show nice timing here.
There's a moment in the film when we see a character named Hillary trying
to come on strong with Gloria by trying to seduce her it seems to have a nice lesbian artsy type of appeal to this.
The best part in the film is that there's the character named Gloria who has a deep and dark secret revealing towards Bill that unravels the
mystery in the plot as they all make it
look good as well as great camera shots
on each of them when they talk.
Also in the film there's
some good camera shots on some artsy
moments with actresses taking off their
clothes wearing lingere's about to act
kinky as well as great shots on the
killer coming in to murder his victim's.
Bottom line is that the film could've been better
as it needed alot of polishing but it
wasn't terrible. It gets a bit better though.
Made on a film budget mostly but however
the editing is a little uneven with the
audio and such but this film was trying
to be a take on those Italian horror
A neat artsy slasher flick that carries
on the tradition of other slasher films
but in a different way. However, it does
lack a bit but not too much.
The acting is at
times uneven and sometimes passable but
the audio was terribly dubbed on the
actors in this film as it almost looked
like a foreign film dubbed in english but
these are really the actors voices.
actress Liz Haverty (Gloria Streeb) seems to do
well with her character by showing good
emotions to her role as the wife of a
murdered man and wants to find out who
killed him. She also does well by acting shocked in her first scene in which she leaves a nice impression to her acting skills while spotting this. Also she has a nice almness to her speaking in certain scene's which looked pretty impressive too.
Joe Zaso (Bill Streeb) is great too as the
brother of the victim showing good
expressions, intensity and anger to his
role. He also shows some good energy when he is shocked or psyched out in a situation as well as acting believeably anxious in certain spots. He also knew on how to get into a lustful mode making his reactions with all of this pretty believeable too.
Xavier Domingo (Inspector Andez) pulls off his character well too as a
detective making his character look
Supporting actor Mony Damevsky (Richard Streeb) seems to stand out well playing someone
almost insane as the husband supposedly
killed. He shows off nice energy here.
Lynn Macri (Hillary) really needed
improvement as the lesbian maid in the
film but she still had some interesting
and dark moments to her role. However when she tried to come on strong with her lustful and obsesssive attitude she lacks a bit with this type of performance in her role.
Supporting actress Gina Colon (Rosie) makes
her character truly mysterious too in the
film as a possible suspect.
A lady is taking a
shower full nude before she gets kills
during the opening of this film.
There is a sex scene between Joe Zaso and Liz Haverty's characters.
A guys face is
eaten alive by pirahna's.
A guy gets stabbed in the neck with a
sharp metal object which is a little
graphic and during a dream sequence.
A man's chest is cut open and a person
takes out his heart which is wrapped
around a picture if a painting.
The music was
composed by Jerry Djerassi whom
at first is rather boring with the piano
playing during the beginning of the film
when a lady is taking a shower and then
murdered but he really improves
especially during the other murders along
with some icy synthesizer playing too
making it a horror effective sound to the
