Occasionally lively thriller about a coldhearted husband who plots to have his wealthy wife killed so that he can enjoy life with his mistress.

But when your hired assassin of choice is a psychotic serial sex murderer in his own right...things can go a little wrong.

This Greek horror has some nice touches (most notably some interesting story twists), but is generally hampered by a lack of any redeeming characters whatsoever. The climax at least provides a modicum of justice.

Also known as The Rape Killer and also Eglima sto kavouri.
