93 min.
Directed by Andrea Bianchi.

This is a totally fun Italian slasher/giallo.

The victim of a shoddy abortion, poor Evelyn experiences heart failure and dies.

Hoping to hide his malpractice, the attending physician takes Evelyn's body home, and places her in a bathtub full of water.

But soon, a stranger clad in black leather & biker helmet brutally knives the offending doc to death.

Before long, the mysterious killer takes the show on the road, stalking the employees at the Albatross modelling agency where Evelyn worked...one by one!

This sassy & sleazy work is from the director of 1980's classic zombie tit-munching epic Burial Ground.

However, this one's a surprisingly competent mystery with leads Fenech and Castelnuovo delivering good performances.

Best scene: near the climax Edwige hopes to elude the murderer who's lurking somewhere about...in the utter darkness!

High art it ain't. But when you're having this much fun, who cares?

Italian: Nude per l'assassino.
