“Everyone has it’s price. Even a maniac.”


A horny fucker is blackmailing Minou to have sex with him. Using a supposed evidence of her business-husband alleged murder of a competitor. Protecting her husband she do what he wants. While abusing her viciously he’s secretly taking photos of her that he’s using for another round of blackmail. When she finally confess what she did to her husband and the police, they try to track the blackmailer. It appears that he’s imaginary and that Minou is going mad. But something is not quite right.


A nice little Giallo with surprisingly little murders. A little shoot-out at the end is all we get. The story is standard but solid, the decor and the feel is good and Morricone’s soundtrack is haunting and builds up the tension. Screenwriter Gastaldi has his usual way with sadistic male protagonists. Well worth a watch!
