This is one weird giallo film...and when I mean weird, I mean sleazy and over the top! The story revolves around a felon who believes he sees a body being buried. When he gets out of jail he tries to blackmail the folks he thinks are responsible. In true giallo fashion there are many weird things going on...casual incest, Nazi flashbacks, weird wigs and more twists than Chubby Checker has! If you are looking for something classy and well shot with a great soundtrack, this isn't the film for you...but if you like strange psychedelic mysteries this is one you won't want to miss. The good news is that most of it will make sense later on so even if you feel you are at the pinnacle of confusion...stick with it!

Availability:  On DVD
