Chilly blond Mimsy Farmer is an Italian medical student who has disturbing visions of the waking dead during a rash of grotesque suicides. She works in a morgue where every living man in her orbit hits on her and one coworker even tries to rape her ("You can't blame a guy for trying. Nothing turns on a man more than an icy woman," comforts an oh-so understanding boyfriend). Barry Primus is an angry priest with a dark past and anger-management issues (he screams, "I've killed many others and I'll kill you too," while beating a man's skull into the pavement). The apparent cause of the suicide hit parade is extreme sunspot activity (each death is punctuated with fiery images of solar flares), but when victims close to Farmer start dropping from high-rise windows, the picture twists into a murder mystery with a gallery of sleazy and shady suspects. Director Armando Crispino fills in the edges with unending images of death, shocking violence, and gratuitous nudity, creating an intermittently stylish but often bluntly exploitative horror mystery. Shorn of 15 minutes when it debuted in American theaters in the mid-1970s, the sex and violence has been completely restored for video. One short scene is in Italian with English subtitles, due to missing soundtrack materials, while the rest is dubbed in English. Ennio Morricone provides a suitably strange mix of atonal stings and lovely melodies. --Sean Axmaker

job here in autopsy. Without a actress of her skill this movie would be half the movie it is. It wasn't among the better of the giallos of the period at the time. But it does have Ray Lovelock who is always a solid performer and other fine actors as well. The name of the movie would lead you to expect a solid amount of violence and gruesome giallo mayhem.
But it's not that violent and is more a traditional mystery thriller. There is like most 1970's giallos lots of nudity though and of course a twist at the end as we find out who the killer is. It's not a great flick but it's a acceptable italian mystery giallo that is completely average at best. That being said the print looks good and
is well mastered so it's a decent little giallo film for mystery fans.
