Whatever limitations this film had, whether budget, actors, or legal filming permits, it didn’t stop them from just going for it in the most unhinged manner possible. Some stretches it bogs down into talky police drama but then it boils over into pure LSD horror. Nothing derivative about this at all. Also a sneaky entry into the hallowed Heavy Metal Horror genre. Hard to recommend because it’s so niche but you won’t forget it. Love the CBGB’s scenes.
Another Sergio Martino sleazefest done with a style and skill that only Argento could top. This one's a bit of a trick because the giallo element only goes about halfway before Martino breaks this movie wide open into something out of Edgar Allan Poe and even Hitchcock. It's totally unexpected and keeps you guessing at what the hell he's going to show you next. Edwige Fenech plays a stronger character than she usually does and that's half the fun of the movie. Definitely one of Martino's best, if not the best of his career.
