Description by OLDIES.com:

Anita Ekberg plays the gorgeous and tortured dancer with the Great Dane named Devil, who, after being nearly attacked by a man with a knife, is put into an asylum under the obsessive care of psychiatrist Dr. Greenwood (Harry Townes). When the girl begins to show signs of improvement, the psychiatrist assumes her care on the outside so she can resume her dancing career. The proprietor (Gypsy Rose Lee) of El Madhouse, a tawdry nightclub, hires the girl but then a series of murders by "The Ripper" attracts the attention of a newspaper reporter (Phil Carey), and the doctor and reporter face off to try to protect the girl. A sensual statue of a dancing girl called "Screaming Mimi" seems to play a part in the bizarre mystery. Newly remastered.

Product Description:

Two years before Hitchcock terrified audiences with the shower scene from PSYCHO, audiences recoiled at the shower scene in this dark and decidedly twisted psychological thriller. The tale of terror centers on an exotic dancer (Anita Ekberg) who is terrorized by a knife-wielding homicidal maniac. She is cut up but not seriously hurt as her step brother bursts into the bathroom and shoots the killer before he finishes. Unfortunately, the slasher escapes. Time passes, and while the physical wounds, heal, the psychic wounds continue to haunt the poor dancer, who must go to a psychiatrist for help. When a reporter hears about the case, he suspects the work of a serial killer and starts investigating. He finds that each of the killer's victims are given a horrifying sculpture of a woman screaming. Meanwhile, the girl's doctor finds himself falling in love with her.
