This is definitely not the most bloody giallo out there, nor is it the strangest, but it's a goodie all the same. Patterning itself heavily after "Blood and Black Lace" this in many ways is sort of a stylistic update and with weirder plot turns. It's about a model named Jennifer (the lovely Edwige Fenech) and her friend who move into a place where the previous tenant was viciously murdered in of course. Soon there are many suspects and people stalking Jennifer therefore many red herrings (including a lesbian, a weird old lady and her mutant son, and even the handsome lead who suffers from a phobia of blood). The story was actually quite captivating and I was really dying to know who did it, so it's a clever mystery! So yes this is a good story, highly entertaining with a great cast, the soundtrack is a good one and definitely a must see all around!
