Product Description

One Day She Met A Man Who Loved Beautiful Women...
BUT NOT ALL IN ONE PIECE!

A series of sex murders shock a college campus, and four beautiful young girlfriends head for the safety of an isolated country villa. But as they succumb to their own erotic desires, their weekend of pleasure becomes a vacation to dismember at the hands - and blade - of the lecherous maniac.

Directed by Sergio Martino (MOUNTAIN OF THE CANNIBAL GOD) and starring Suzy Kendall (THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE) and Tina Aumont (SALON KITTY), this Euro Horror chiller was originally released in America with much of its controversial violence removed by censors. Now freshly transferred in thrilling High Definition from the original negative, TORSO is presented in both its Uncensored English Version and Full-Length Italian Director's Cut for the first time ever!

Customer Reviews

There are a lot of really good italian horror/slasher films and a lot of bad ones.

Yeah, there's a lot of cool stuff came out the year I was born and Torso, aka Carnal Violence, is not one of them.
Binky Chottorrhœhia
Like most Italian directors, he's directed films in practically every genre anyway.

Anchor Bay's DVD of TORSO is incredible - the image is crisp, sharp, colorful and there is no artifacting whatsoever. The print is also UNCUT! For years the film was seen in the US only in an edited version with most of the gore and sex cut out. It's great to finally see the entire uncut film with it's original opening and the extra sex and gore bits....I love the head crushing scene (albeit kind of fake) plus there's extra shots of the killer sawing up the bodies into little pieces. What more do you want? There's the cool looking hooded killer plus lots of stylistic giallo touches...this movie is better than ever especially in this impeccable presentation. It's letterboxed and includes the fun US trailer-"Tor---so!" as well as the original euro-trailer. A few shots in the film are in italian with english-subtitles because either the english track was never recorded or it had been lost...but it's not annoying at all and you just can't help loving this disc...especially if you are into euro-sleaze! One of Anchor Bay's best!

This campy 1970's Italian slasher whodunnit flick pretty much has it all. It's stylish in a Dario Argento sort of way, but has far more breasts and overall sexuality. There's lots of potential suspects and dead people along the way. One death scene is almost painfully bad in execution as a rubber head gets crushed between a car and a wall (you can literally see the fake head cave), then in the next shot the guy's head is intact as he stumbles, not quite dead. Yet cinematography overall is gorgeous, largely thanks to the locations, and overall direction is solid. The whole thing clocks in at 90 or 93 minutes depending on if you choose the US or Italian version to watch, so it doesn't overstay its welcome either.

I've always been impressed with Blue Underground's ability to produce clean clear transfers of the sometimes obscure movies they release, and this one's no exception. Image and sound are near perfect for a film of this age and genre. It's probably never looked better, and probably sounds just as it did in its original theatrical run.

Another awesome Blue Underground release.

Blue Underground offers two versions of this film in DVD, both claiming to be the first uncut, uncensored US release. Both are indeed uncensored, but there are slight differences in the disks. The most recent version (yellow box, and less expensive) is missing a few brief scenes, none critical, that appear on the older (red box) one. Because the scenes are not important, and have apparently suffered the permanent loss of their English soundtracks (the Italian soundtrack is still there), they were probably deleted for the reissue, although the cuts do remove another brief bit of slasher fondling victim. I thought the yellow version looked crisper, with brighter color, perhaps benefiting from work done for the Blu-ray transfer. Given a choice, I would take the yellow version, but not pay extra for Blu-ray. The movie is a product of its time and place, and, by Hollywood standards of the day, crudely made with weak acting. It nonetheless has sufficient clever moments and, at the end, genuine suspense, to warrant its reputation. The first half looks more like a nudie film which, together with the graphic violence, made it much more provocative than contemporary mainstream American films (though not for long), and probably accounts for the censorship to which it was long subjected. Nice to see the original.

TORSO
[I Corpi Presentano Tracce di Violenza Carnale]

(Italy - 1973)

Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Theatrical soundtrack: Mono

Following the murder of several classmates by a frenzied sex-killer, a group of female students retire to an isolated villa until police have apprehended a viable suspect. But the maniac is wise to their deception, and he/she follows them...

This stylish, gripping giallo-thriller - the equal of anything directed by Dario Argento at the time - was co-written by veteran scribe Ernesto Gastaldi and director Sergio Martino, the latter a journeyman technician whose commercial ethos catapulted him from one genre to another within the dictates of Italian popular cinema (cf. BLADE OF THE RIPPER, THE VIOLENT PROFESSIONALS, SEX WITH A SMILE, etc.). Despite bland performances from an unremarkable cast (including Euro stalwarts Suzy Kendall [THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE], John Richardson [THE MASK OF SATAN] and Luc Merenda [THEY CALLED HIM AMEN]), and some pretty obvious red herrings amongst the supporting players, TORSO is augmented by a number of beautifully crafted set-pieces (most notably the stalking of a young woman [Cristina Airoldi] through desolate marshland by the masked maniac), photographed with stunning visual flair by Martino's regular DP Giancarlo Ferrando (THE CASE OF THE SCORPION'S TAIL) and edited to perfection by Eugenio Alabiso (MOUNTAIN OF THE CANNIBAL GOD).

The second half of the movie, during which Kendall becomes enmeshed in a nightmarish situation at a remote but picturesque country villa, is genuinely nerve-racking, staged with cat-and-mouse efficiency by Martino at his most inspired. Spiced with audience-pleasing elements of sex and violence which tested the limits of censorship in 1973, TORSO is a minor gem. Produced by Carlo Ponti, previously responsible for the likes of WAR AND PEACE (1956) and DOCTOR ZHIVAGO!
