Directed by Sergio Martino.
“Torso”, is an Italian slasher about a masked man killing young college girls by strangling them with a red scarf. The police find fibers of the scarf under the nails of the victims and begin an investigation. One woman thinks she has seen the scarf before and knows who the killer is. Can they stop him before he strikes again? Or have they got the wrong man?
This is an interesting film because it’s a slasher pre “Texas Chainsaw”, “Halloween”, or “Friday the 13th.” Perhaps those films borrowed bits from this one. There’s some great scenes here, but as a whole “Torso” is very slow going.
2.0 out of 4.0 stars.
