A história é extremamente redundante, mas o filme é salvo pelo fim inesperado, pelas mortes com bastante gore e pelo melhor personagem que Lewis criou até hoje: o detective que fui expulso da polícia e trabalha por conta própria. Muito sentido de humor, sarcasmo e paródias à polícia e ao feminismo. Good splatter movie.
H.G.Lewis's last gore film before his retirement. Not as great as BLOOD FEAST but even more gruesome and this time some of the laughs are intentional. The carnage in this one is so over the top (and obviously fake) that it becomes something truly other. It can be hard (for some) to figure out what is the most appropriate response to it. Probably not a good date movie.
