Daily Horror Scavenger Hunt 26 - August 2020

[25]Watch some horror with both male and female full-frontal nudity, watch while naked for bonus points.

No bonus points for me, and actually there wasn't all that much nudity at all - I don't even recall any male nudity. I had a tough time finding a copy until I stumbled upon a pretty solid version on Youtube complete with subtitles, so it's possible a couple scenes were cut but I'm counting it. I'm glad I finally got around to watching this though because it was really good. Part of me hesitates to call it a giallo film because it doesn't have a lot of the same characteristics like the black-gloved killer, but it's definitely a mystery still and I'm okay with that. What it lacked in a ton of deaths it made up for with a lot of intrigue, some really cool old dilapidated buildings in the Italian countryside, and some interesting characters. Didn't particularly expect the ending either, although I might've just been dense. Really solid effort that is worth your time if you like the standard 70s giallo efforts by Fulci, Argento, etc.
