a rarity in the Giallo World, here is a psychedelic thriller - there are
only a handful of others IN
THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH, CAT
IN HEAT, SEASON
OF SENSES, and Lucio Fulci's PERVERSION
STORY - but this one even differentiates itself further by concentrating
on the music as a murder weapon. Before the credits roll, a noted music
professor throws himself through a window to his death in the street.
The next day, a DJ at the Mole House nightclub is reading a newspaper
when he sees an article about the 'suicide' and immediately rushes
to an apartment building in time to sees a girl come crashing through
the window in similar fashion. That girl's name was Katherine. And her
death is also identified as suicide. But her brother Richard (who has
just arrived home from a stint in the British Navy) thinks it's too coincidental
for both Katherine and her teacher to die in back-to-back suicides. A
macabre tale unfolds when Richard learns of his sister's bizarre behavior
during the past few weeks including "a marvelous secret too fantastic
to be true" and her involvement with a mysterious thug who works
security for the Mole House discotheque.
When this motion picture
was made, Romina Power was riding success as an Italian pop-singer superstar.
She was the daughter of American actor Tyrone Power and - after his unexpected
death by heart attack in 1959 - she moved to Europe with her mother and
sister. Romina married Albano Carrisi in the early Sixties. The two began
recording music and together they managed to deliver one hit song after
another. For three decades Romina and Albano rode the European
charts. To this day, they remain Italy's top grossing duo of all time.
Personal tragedy struck in 1994, when their oldest daughter Ylenia Carrisi
was visiting New Orleans at age 22 and went missing in the French Quarter.
She had been staying at the LeDale Hotel with a street musician. The man
was arrested in connection with her disappearance by the New Orleans police
detectives, but later released due to lack of evidence. Ylenia has yet
to be found.
