  • The greatest shocks ever filmed | A fashion house of glamorous models becomes a terror house of blood!


The story concerns the stalking and brutal murders of various scantily-clad fashion models, committed by a masked killer in a desperate attempt to obtain a scandal-revealing diary. The film is generally considered one of the earliest and most influential of all giallos, and served as a stylistic template for the “body count” slasher films of the 1980’s. (Wikipedia)
