Considering this was one of the first gialli films, it's certainly no weakling! It's filled with garish colors, gruesome deaths and beautiful girls! The story takes place in a house full of models, one is murdered then when her diary turns up it seems many more must die! It's a traditional black gloved, masked killer which is interesting, has some tense moments and lots of blood and colorful backdrop. It's a shame there isn't a really nice version available for purchase as of yet, but hopefully it will turn up remastered on Bluray so it will be even more visually appealing. A definite must see for gialli fans and fans of slashers alike, there is a reason Bava is so well regarded!
