Suzy Kendall and Lesley Anne-Down star in a brutal British crime thriller about a vicious rapist-murderer on the prowl near an all-girls school in an English village.
Young art mistress Julie West (Kendall) glimpsed the killer but was unable to identify him and so decides to act as bait to lure the fiend out from the shadows.
Frank Finlay plays Detective Chief Superintendent Velyan who is leading the hunt for the attacker with the help of some psychological profiling from Doctor Greg Lomax (Jamie Laurenson).
Also known as In The Devil’s Garden and Satan’s Playthings, this film is sometimes referred to as a British Giallo, along the lines of the predominantly Italian genre then rising in popularity throughout Europe.
Star Suzy Kendall had earlier appeared in Dario Argento’s The Bird With the Crystal Plumage.
