David Warbeck stars an instructor who marries a traumatized, crippled woman. The wife is tormented by a traumatic event that happended. What is even more unfortunate is that her marriage is a just part of her maniac husband’s evil scheme to kill her for her money. It isn’t long before the formula is put into action and the gory body count starts to mount.

A very suspenseful giallo from the director of “L’Anticristo”(1974), this one begins with a brilliantly-handled sequence involving a priest,a little girl, and a broken doll. However the main story is about a maniac (David Warbeck) marrying a traumatized cripple to kill her for her money. The plot, whilst not original, is really suspenseful, the acting is good and there are several skillful and gory murders. The score by Francesco de Massi is quite effective, some of which can also be heard in Lucio Fulci’s “The New York Ripper”(1982). Highly recommended for fans of Italian cinema!
