Great giallo about a group of girls who are stalked by a masked killer in an Italian villa. Nice gore, nice nudity
(which happens quite a bit), good whodunit storyline, nice camera work, good soundtrack, what more could you ask for?  Thumbup

I like the Netflix description:  "But as the girls abandon their clothes and their inhibitions, the twisted killer closes in for another round of murder."

One of the better of the earlier Giallos.  This is one of those films that is made even MORE memorable by it's trailer.  The announcer repeating "TORSO TORSO TORSO" over and over was quite effective!

A bald man named Savalas visited me last night in a dream.  I think it was a Telly vision.

It didnt quite live up to my expectations, probably worth seeing still though. 6/10 for me

not in the same league as Dario Argento's early ones

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
