While not my favorite Lucio Fulci flick or even one of my favorite giallo films, this was still rather entertaining. The plot revolves around man who hires a nurse for his Wife, then she ends up dead. After he buries her he notices a stripper who looks remarkably like his dead wife, only she's a blond with green eyes. Things start going horribly wrong regarding the death of his wife as suspicions have landed upon him. This flick is not gory, nor is it bloody nor does much in the way of death happen (though there is a corpse or two). The story at least winds together nicely in the end and it's pretty easy to follow. The sets are rather groovy and oddly this one takes place in San Francisco so the scenery is nice (though the jerky airplane shots were a little too frequent). There is a load of boobage in this, so if you like to look at attractive naked girls, that should be an added bonus for ya. Probably not something I'll rush out to watch again right away but an interesting addition to the land of giallo, and something yet again entirely different from the multi-talented Lenzi. Oh and for the record, I'm not quite sure what's so perverse about this 'un, they could have come up with a better title me thinks.
