I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale

Sergio Martino Italy, 1973

Nick Schwab'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 care for or even know the thinly written characters in the slightest.
