Starring: Jeff Blynn (Detective), Leonora Fani (Flavia), Gianni Dei (Fabio), Mariangela Giordano (Marzia), Michele Renzullo (Andrea), Vassili Karis (Bruno)
Country: Italy, European Cinema
Language: Italian (Eng Subs)
Runtime: 01:38:43
Genres: Detective-Mystery, BDSM, Gore-Gruesome-, Sexual-Violence against Women, Voyeur

Plot – Spoilers:
A couple are found murdered near a canal in Venice. Investigation into their sex life reveals a kink-obsessed husband goading his wife into sexual romps that she finds hard to keep up with.

The detective in charge of the case struts about with a swagger that is only matched by his mop and appetite for hardboiled eggs.

Yup, an egg-gorging detective. He awkwardly juggles the eggs and throws the eggshell bits wherever he pleases, which goes very well with the copious amounts of sex, giallo-standard violence and vintage Italian women.

There are more pretty women now thanks to the ‘cosmetic industry’ & ‘plastic surgery’. Thank you very much.

Apparently, I really hurt poor little Rilted Skinni- jeans wearing, basement dweller’s feelings….. lolz

Dance for me, little monkey. Amuse me with your low IQ and child-like temper….

He surely must be one of those so insecure about his appearance that he absolutely needs to have a medical procedure done to elevate his amazingly low self esteem.

Ass raped by Daddy, perhaps Or was it an uncle? And you really need to learn another word besides “incel”. It means nothing to a guy whose getting laid regularly – which obviously IS NOT you.

I was looking for some spoilers in the comments but all I got was Europeans that feed into the stereotype that those people think they’re better than everyone else and men upset that no woman naturally pretty, plastic or otherwise has ever spoken to them of their own volition. Now I see why those men love this website so much lol

Fuck me, the skids in these comments….

Anyway, I’m a big fan of the ‘giallo’ genre. Beautiful women, bloody violence, nonsensical scripts and hilarious ‘acting’. This film had most of that, yet still managed to be boring as hell. Was more soft-core porn than a proper giallo flick. Star of the film was the Commissioner’s hair.

I have to say, this one rates pretty high on the LOL scale, especially in the character development area. From our seemingly egg obsessed hero and the fact that he never once changes clothes, to the blank sheet of paper that serves as his “warrant”, to the bullet wounded hand that functions perfectly, albeit it has a hole in it the size of Idaho…. I give this one a solid five LOLs.

Thank you, EUM… for all the hard work you do to keep us amused. You guys both rock AND roll.

PLEASE – shoot me an email and tell me how I can donate to your more then worthy cause.

Admins, thanks a TON for adding another of my film requests! Glad to see it stirred shit up apparently;)

So I’ve seen damn near every gialli(plural of Giallo) made, literally, and this one is definitely an all-time favorite of mine. Giallo films have certain characteristics that define them as such, and this film took em, said fuck it, n cranked it to 11, and threw in some pretty ‘so bad it’s good’ acting, characters, filming, writing, the list goes on. This film is a piece of trash, and EASILY the most sleazy and misogynistic giallo, outta ALL of em, which actually says a lot. The Sister Of Ursula would take #2 in the sleaze af giallo category in case anybody was wondering, lol.

Even tho this film was made to b exploitive af, released when the Giallo genre was all but dead, was impossible to see uncut until recently(I got the Scorpion bluray) bc I guess they uncovered some unedited print of it in a dentist office attic, lol, and all the aforementioned qualities initially listed, I still love this film. On a ‘giallo scale’ I give it a 10/10 all day, the standing ovation:D

Users: If u like/ r interested in Giallo films, I’d highly suggest checking out the film The House With Laughing Windows(all-time #1 fav of mine) which could easily b considered one of the pillars of the genre(tho lesser known), n last I knew was on YouTube to view freely. Your Vice Is A Locked Room And Only I Have The Key (whew) is another fav and one to definitely check out, as well as The Psychic(aka Sette Note In Nero) by the late, great Lucio Fulci. Also awesome r any/all gialli directed by Mario Bava or starring the lovely Edwige Fenech<3

I just wanna throw a quick shoutout to the homie who does the descriptions for these movies…. Bro, I was like WTF does hardboiled eggs have do with anything. Hardboiled eggs are the best… But dude seriously, I never knew it would hit a certain nerve inside me to just watch this egg addicted maniac throw these damn eggshells everywhere. I couldn’t focus on literally anything else in the entire movie.

Just curious but is this from the 35mm print of this film, which contained the lost uncensored version, that was found in the attic of a Portuguese dental clinic, was restored and released on Blu-ray in 2016?

Notable moments:

1. The guy’s dick in the theater was teeeeeny tiny. Seriously,. I haven’t seen a penis that small in a film ever. I give it 4 maybe 5 inches, and that’s being generous. It was a thumb sized girth. Gross.

2. The music was abhorrent and so seventies. I guess, if it’s nostalgic for you, then mor power to you. So glad I had the 90’s to fall back on musically.

3. The main detective basically violates his gf? Idk what she was, i was programming a game at the same time. I think she was a booty call. As a cop though, you probably should not violate booty calls. Wtf.

4. The gore was pretty well done. I was surprised..

5. Everyone has hair on their pussy. Oh the seventies..how backwards you were.

6. What is up with that white suit? At least it didn’t have the long pimp lapel. So there’s that.

7. That chick swears she loves that guy, but he whips her. So yeah, run chick, run.

8. Finally, the serial killer is a real big whiny cry baby. All tough with those glasses but when they took them off it was like Samson and Delilah, he lost all his power. And I don’t know about you, but I had never seen a movie where the serial killer cries. Who does that?

Def not a favorite. I guess guys might like it for all the pussy, and tits, but us females or also gay men will not have much interest in it. The sex isn’t even hot. It’s like that weirdo corny seventies movie sex.

I gave this a:
