Udo Kier. As Jack the Ripper. Need I say more? Oh, I will: the only other mention (who I'm sure was at the same screening) deems this is "softcore porn," "sensual trash." I beg to differ. Erotic fantasy, maybe. A histrionic series of chamber pieces (all sets designed by Boro), concerning the rise and fall of a provocative yet vacant woman, it is. Hysterical, funny, crude.
As far as softcore porn goes, it's surprisingly fun and breezy. Anne Bennent stars as a nympho who seemingly brings death upon all the men she sleeps with. It's hard to tell if Boro meant for it to be humorous or if that's a product of the English dub on the print I saw. Regardless, certainly not a great film, and not even a really good one, but a fun piece of sensual trash. Udo Kier even pops up for a scene!
