About Torso (1973)
A towering terror from the end of the ‘70s giallo boom, TORSO finds director Sergio Martino (YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY, CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL) reveling in the genre’s time-honored traditions while also laying groundwork for the modern slasher. It delivers copious violence, sleaze and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid.
A maniac prowls the streets of Perugia, targeting picturesque university students. Alarmed at the plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE) and her friends elope to a secluded country villa to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they've brought it with them...
Directed by Sergio Martino. Provided courtesy of Arrow Films. Running time: 90 minutes.
