Rating: 3.5/5 -- For those prepared to overlook the stumbling script which exists merely as a frame, this is a true original, a portrait of murder in oils. Full Review
Eye for Film
Feb 23, 2015
It's one of Bava's most accomplished works, executed with a dazzling, unprecedented use of bright colors and deep shadows (sometimes both at once). Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- While there would be better giallo films arriving in later years, the postmark on this one makes it essential viewing. Full Review

Jan 12, 2019
Rating: C+ -- This B-film has a wooden script, leaden acting and uninteresting characters, but manages to show flashes of competence through the colorful direction of Bava. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Mar 9, 2010
It is such a lysergic collision of high art and low that its very outmodedness has now become a paradoxical part of its timeless appeal - and from such heady heights, the only way could be down for the slasher genre that Bava's film helped model.

Rating: 75/100 -- Eerie, atmospheric ancestor to the slasher flick.

Description by OLDIES.com:

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?

Product Description:

A suspense thriller (or "giallo") from Italy about a gloved and masked murderer who preys on gorgeous fashion models. Could the killer be driven by something more than pure sexual deviance' One of the models keeps a diary of the forbidden love affairs and recreational drug smuggling that takes place at a swanky fashion salon where she works, and the murderer is willing to do whatever it takes to silence whomever reads it. A stylish film from the Italian king of shock cinema, Mario Bava.
