  1. Paolo Utili's rating of the film Torso

  2. sior Vanni's rating of the film Torso

    For the first hour this movie bounces between quality and crap even more frequently than it jumps between nudity and gore, but then it all becomes very worth watching in the final third. If only we could get a reedit with some actual character development for our main group of women and an extension of the sweat-inducing game of cat-and-mouse.

  3. Filip Court's rating of the film Torso

    great flick to chill with da homies

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Torso

    If you don't care who the killer is at the end, then maybe your movie isn't any good. It may also be a function of how much nudity you have. You end up waiting for the next woman to disrobe instead of paying attention to the plot.

  5. itwstlnd's rating of the film Torso

    dear American friends: this is not good at all really. I don't understand how you can ignore movies like Le orme (1975) or Macchie solari (1975) or Il profumo della signora in nero (1974) and praise such a poorly directed/written/acted movie like Torso. All Martino wanted was making fast cash with erotism + giallo tropes, yet you guys treats him like he's Sergei Eisenstein lol

  6. Core's rating of the film Torso

    (La palude. Il risveglio di Suzy Kendall e il silenzio dell'orrore, insieme con la scena che immediatamente lo precede - e lo stacco che le unisce. L'uso espressivo del montaggio, soprattutto nel finale, ma anche nel portare ad evidenza l'elemento che distingue l'assassino.)

  7. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Torso

    An early giallo/proto-slasher that finally rises out of its weak-whodunit plotting when it becomes a final-girl flick, as Suzy Kendall secretly witnesses her friends dead bodies being hack-sawed to pieces by the sex-killer in a series of searingly suspenseful scenes. The horror is so well-drawn out here that it's a true pity that one doesn't know the characters in the slightest and that it takes so long to get there.

  8. Marco Tassinari's rating of the film Torso

  9. TheCentralRuhr's rating of the film Torso

    Not sure I quite 'get' Martino yet, I greatly admired the inventive blocking of his previous film 'Your Vice...' yet this film didn't quite jive with me. Particular moments such as the association made between giallo aesthetics of bodies & blood to both abstract expressionist art and the Italian Renaissance painter Perugino are the most intriguing aspects and will hopefully become elucidated in subsequent viewings.

  10. Helob's rating of the film Torso

  11. Rocco's rating of the film Torso

    Maybe gialli just aren't for me. Besides Deep Red, What Have You Done to Solange and Lizard In A Woman's Skin...every film is dull as dishwater with a few moments of searing visual brilliance to break up the monotony. This one is especially porn-y with little else to interest one, even in the death scenes.

  12. Balthaz21's rating of the film Torso

  13. Diderot's rating of the film Torso

    As far as slasher flicks go, this is as fine a piece of misogynist pop art as one might imagine. Certain stylistic flourishes like the camera-zooms and kitschy music now seem like little touches of winking brilliance, although the pornographic prurience is likely very genuine (and therefore equal parts charming and embarrassing, amusing and repulsive).

  14. L'immoralistee's rating of the film Torso

  15. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Torso

    Plants a seed of belief in the purely pornografic masterwork.

  16. bitchwitched's rating of the film Torso

  17. English Dodo's rating of the film Torso

    I'm giving this giallo classic three stars simply because of the superb use of locations. The film has another thing going for it, the tension. In the tense final part of the film the heroine is trapped in a house with a murderer who doesn't even know she's there. While the cliches of most giallo films are present the visual flair, strong directing, and fleshed out characters really made this film stand out.

  18. Ethan's rating of the film Torso

    This is a really gory slasher film that requires late night viewing.

  19. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Torso

    Sergio Martino was a good technician without any imagination so he was a lot dependent on the screenplay he was adapting. 'Torso' was written by Ernesto Gastaldi, one of the most interesting giallo writers of the period hence the quality of the movie. Recommended.

  20. film_lies101's rating of the film Torso

    One of the darkest, angriest, nastiest gialli ever produced.

  21. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Torso

    Youth in Italy getting high, getting naked, and getting killed. With plenty of suspense, mystery, and action, this giallo-slasher is wildly entertaining. Highly recommended.

  22. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Torso

    The ultimate link between the giallo and the slasher, as has been stated... When I was really into slashers I was upset by proto-slashers lack of female agency but as a giallo fan I can appreciate the other merits.

  23. Pymo's rating of the film Torso

    Don't look under the door...

  24. Joshua's rating of the film Torso

    I must bump this up to 4 stars. I was disappointed 5 years ago when I went in expecting the high hopes that tagged along with the stunning praise it received from other slasher fans, but this time I got what I wanted. A strong Martino giallo, not only with striking imagery, but clever ideas woven together into a well bred story.
