The Case of the Bloody Iris (1972)
104 min.
Directed by Giuliano Carnimeo.
With Edwige Fenech, George Hilton, Paola Quattrini, Giampiero Albertini, Franco Agostini, Oreste Lionello, Ben Carra, Carla Brait, Gianni Pulone, Carla Mancini.
The always stunning Fenech moves into an apartment complex where two women have recently been murdered. Before long, the buxom beauty finds herself without the roommate she moved in with...and next on the killer's hit list.

Is the madman her new beau (the architect of the building) or one of her many neighbors?

Good giallo which benefits from solid murder sequences, well-placed moments of humor, and interesting characters galore. (And when we say "interesting," we mean eccentric, crazy and hilarious.) Hats off to the excellent "full-daylight-on-a-crowded-street murder" sequence.

Also known either as Why Are There Strange Drops of Blood on Jennifer's Body? or as Erotic Blue.

Italian title: Perche quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer?
