What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (1974)
95 min.
Directed by Massimo Dallamano.
With Giovanna Ralli, Claudio Cassinelli, Mario Adorf, Franco Fabrizi, Farley Granger, Marina Berti, PaoloTurco.
Massimo Dallamano's follow up of sorts to his What Have You Done to Solange? (1972).

Fifteen year old Sylvia is found hanged, an apparent suicide.

But after Inspector Silvestri (Cassinelli) and the assistant D.A. (Ralli) launch an investigation, they uncover an underground ring of schoolgirl prostitution, kinky sex...and a killer out to silence the whole mess.

This action-tinged mystery is less a giallo than Solange, and more of a police thriller. But it's entertaining nonetheless.

Notable highlights include a nailbiting cat and mouse chase with Ralli and the killer.

Look for Granger as Sylvia's grief-stricken father. Nice Stelvio Cipriani score.

Also known as The Coed Murders as well as The Police Want Help.

Italian: La polizia chiede aiuto.
