Beautiful young model Jennifer Lansbury and her goofy friend Marilyn Ricci move into a swanky high-rise apartment after the previous tenant gets brutally murdered. Pretty soon Jennifer is being stalked by the mysterious killer. Probable suspects include a predatory lesbian neighbor, a weird old woman and her deformed son, and even the building’s handsome architect who suffers from a severe blood phobia. – IMDb

A superlative giallo, highly recommended for fans of the genre. Director Giuliano Carnimeo and cinematographer Stelvio Massi outdid themselves here, with a camera that is constantly moving and perched from unconventional angles. Parts of the film are slow-paced but, hell, tell me what giallo isn't. The visuals are stunning as is lead actress Edwige Fenech. And the elevator murder is right out of "Dressed to Kill."
Offbeat, above average giallo thriller. The slick style, some pretty odd humor (the dubbed dialogue is pretty unusual), and a colorful cast of characters, headline by genre stalwart Edwige Fenech make this great entertainment for fans of the genre.
absolutely gorgeous, even among gialli - some really amazing photograpy here, particularly scene with the titular iris. edwidge is her usual wonderful self. the ending is awfully predictable, but that's not really why we watch gialli, anyway.
