Superior TV thriller feels like a giallo by way of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None.

Irene Barton (Walter) and her models are summoned to the secluded mountaintop home of fashion icon Regine (Parker) for a private showing of the aging guru's latest designs.

But the show's over when the Barton models begin to be murdered one by one!

Is the killer an escaped psycho from the village town below, or is it someone with a personal vendetta?

Connie Selleca is confident in the lead role as Alix, the 'new' Barton girl - and last on the killer's hit list.

Walter and Parker are always a pleasure to watch, and the remote setting of Regine's mansion lends the piece a welcome feeling of isolation.

Also known as Someone's Killing the World's Greatest Models.
