"The Giallo Collection

My oppinion:
Well, what can I say? This one wasn't really that good. The acting, particularly from Daniela's boyfriend really annoyed me. Josie Bisset (Daniela) did an ok job though. The "psycho" didn't come across as very convincing to me. I did have some expectations from this one, as I'd recently seen Lenzi's giallo: "Knife of Ice" which impressed me a lot. So needless to say, I was disappointed. On the plus side, Josie Bisset is very nice to look at, both with and without clothes.. The utterly pointless wet T-shirt contest was one of few highlights as well, and that says a lot actually.

My rating:
