This is somewhere between a gorefan's delight and a comedic giallo. See the killer here talks in a duck voice to Police, and well that's just silly. It's not silly though that he slices and dices with lots of blood and sadistic methods. This is also rather nudey too and it's even got a part of the whodunnit going on, but that whole mystery angle isn't really the one to approach this movie with. If you want a relatively straightforward slasher with a duck caller in the style of the Italians than this will be one you'll definitely want to see.
