Description du produit
"From Sergio Martino, director of the stylish All The Colors of the Dark and the truly disturbing Mountain Of The Cannibal God, comes this fine gem of a slasher giallo that sits well up there with the best from Bava (Mario!) and Argento. Delicious students, who we can only assume are studying for a masters degree in stripping, head off for a vacation to a location remote enough to ensure undisturbed carnage should a killer be lurking nearby… Luckily for fans of psycho sexual thrillers a black gloved saw-wielding nutter has followed them to their bordello of nudity and soon starts effective slayer multi-tasking by molesting and mutilating his way through a cast of fine beauties including the ever delicious Suzy Kendall! TORSO (cert. 18) is released on DVD by Shameless Screen Entertainment. The film is presented remastered in 1.85:1 with English 2.0 sound, in region 0. Also included on the disc is a Shameless original trailer gallery and the DVD comes presented with a reversible classic artwork sleeve.

A string of murders occurs on a college campus by a masked killer, and a group of female art students decide to escape the madness by taking off to a remote villa. Guess who follows?
The Italians really had this slasher thing down well before Friday the 13th came along. The murders are bloody and violent(for the time it was rather extreme, but not so much now for the typical horror fan), and there is a great deal of female flesh on display, including a lesbian scene! Whoopee!! Of course, this makes it easy to predict who will get slaughtered by the killer, as pretty much all the victims are shown nude at some point except Kendall, who naturally doesn't appear nude. The killer's identity is rather easy to figure out, but it's all about the journey, not the destination, right? In the giallo tradition, there is a heavy attempt to make a particular character seem the most likely candidate for the killer, but it's so obvious that he isn't the killer because of how disturbed and messed up they make him. And the fact that all the evidence points to him too! The last act with Kendall and the killer playing a game of cat and mouse in the villa is actually rather suspenseful at times. Like many giallos, it's stylish, and looks great.
The film's title more than likely refers to the fact that the killer likes to cop a feel on his victims after he murders them. Tasteful.
It may not quite be Argento, but Torso is required reading for the giallo fan.
Suzy Kendall (star of Dario Argento's "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage") is June, the blonde, virginal heroine in "Torso." She, like so many beautiful blondes in the slash-and-stalk thrillers of the slasher frenzy, is the last to survive the killer's fury. At a secluded villa, she awakes to discover the mutilated bodies of her friends.
The killings throughout "Torso" are imaginative and gruesome. However, they lack the realism found in Lucio Fulci's gialli such as "Don't Torture a Duckling" and "A Lizard in a Woman's Skin."
Sergio Martino directed "Torso" as well as other famous gialli such as "Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key" and "The Case of the Scorpion's Tail." It is understandable why he said that "Torso" was his favorite film in the seventies. He must have been constantly surrounded by beautiful, naked women. "Torso" has a stronger sexual content then most of his other gialli. However, the nude scenes are essential to the plot. They are also understandable considering the "sexual awakening" of the seventies Naturally, the movie also has plenty of drug use, promiscuity, and lesbianism, as much as there was in other gialli of that time period. European directors must've loved watching beautiful women kissing each other. Those crazy seventies.
The plot, characterization, acting, scenery, and musical score are superb. "Torso" is a great giallo and I highly recommend that you buy if for your giallo collection. The out of print Anchor Bay edition is very expensive, but there is a more affordable import. However, I've read that the audio and video are of higher quality from Anchor Bay. Hopefully, "Torso" will be given a new release either from Anchor Bay or Blue Underground.
