Plot – Spoilers:
Celia and Christopher are a couple holidaying in Mykonos. Christopher appears insanely jealous and crucifies a man just for eyeing Celia. But it soon emerges that the two have been on a killing spree and landed on the Greek island while on the run. The murders don’t abate as the couple find justifiable reasons to kill pretty much everyone they meet.

Some of the killings aren’t explicit and the gore and effects is often implied rather than shown. But that’s forgivable because of the sheer number of perversions and effed up scenarios the couple create and find themselves in.

quite a rare case of a video nasty actually earning the reputation it got. good story too and great locations.

Much better than the chain saw garbage which is dead boring. This movie actually has a story.

Start watching at 1.16 to avoid the totally unnecessary and pointless opening scene!

So good to see a 4:3 HD film which hasn’t lost 25% by being cropped to 16:9, and the icing on the cake was not having to see the English dialogue annoyingly duplicated in subtitles.
It was a treat to see it, but it seems impossible that such a poorly made film with such unconvincing inexplicit scenes of sex, death and gore could ever have been regarded as a ‘video nasty’ or banned in some countries. It also copies many films by stupidly and pointlessly taking out part of a later scene and tacking it on to the beginning of the film. Why do they bother? The film however does have ONE amazing plus factor – the girl – absolutely lovely with a body to match!

Yeah… this movie both sucks AND blows. But that’s just my opinion. And you know what they says about opinions. Opinions are like assholes. We ALL have one… and they ALL stink.

I liked this movie, especially considering it was released in 1976. Must’ve been shocking to audiences back then. Still holds up as a good effedup movie

Watchable but I think time has taken some of its notoriety away from it – but it was a ‘nasty’ back in its day.

Very controversial in its day so much so that the uncut version is still banned in many countries, so much thanks to the people at EUM for showing it. This director went on to make The Zero Boys a few years later, a much milder film but still very good. ( not a request ). Very appreciative of all your work to posting these rare movies. Cheers.
