Respected criminal psychologist Dr Herbert Lyutak (Mickey Hargitay) has a dark and terrible secret: He’s actually a perverted sexual predator who rapes and kills unsuspecting young miniskirted Italian women.
Meanwhile, as the doctor is out committing his crimes, his beautiful wife Marzia (Rita Calderoni) lies at home in bed, where she endures unrelenting erotic dreams (mostly concerning medieval torture and lesbian orgies) that leave her sexually frustrated.
Described by the All-Movie Guide as “A shining example of outrageous psychosexual perversity”, it’s a splendidly strange and sleazy B-grade Giallo with fab 70s outfits, shades of S&M and lots of onscreen sex, nudity and death.
Definitely not recommended for feminists.
An 85-minute American release version of the film includes additional scenes set in Vietnam. The longer European version (102 minutes) skips the Vietnam flashbacks and has a more coherent story and a different ending.
