This below-average Italian slasher film from director Gianni Martucci (I Fratelli Rossi) begins with a misspelled title, and lives down to that start with awful lighting, ear-torturing synthesizer music, and snail-like pacing. Only 74 minutes long, at least half of the film's running time appears to be taken up by an interminable stalking sequence, prefiguring the lengthy climactic chases of the post-Halloween cycle of American slashers. Roberto Posse and Silvia Mauri host a house party where the guests are soon butchered one by one by a machete-wielding necrophilic psycho. When star Gaetano Russo tries to rape his girlfriend, there's a visible boom mike. The silly plot twists revealed in the final reel make Giulio Questi's gialli seem logical. Devoted Eurotrash cultists will recognize Franco Diogene from Nude per l'Assassino and Ubaldo Continello's recycled score from Ultimo Mondo Cannibale.
