Afer lovemaking in their car, a couple is brutally murdered by a masked maniac. a friend of them, Carol (Conchita Airoldi) is also strangled soon afterwards, when she is leaving a party of drugs & sex, strolling alone through the woods. Her friends at the university are understandably worried, especially Danielle (Tina Aumont) who knows she has seen the scarf that would identify the killer somewhere but has forgotten where. It doesn't get any better when she remembers who she thinks wore the scarf again - Stefano (Roberto Bisacco), a weird admirer of her who sometimes even gets violent.So she decides to spend the weekend at a country villa owned by her uncle with her friends Ursula (Carla Brait) & Katia (Angela Covello), while Jane (Suzy Kendall), another friend of hers, decides to first clear things up with Stefano & then join them. However she doesn't seem to be able to locate Stefano & so heads for the country herself - but unfortunately, so does the killer. But who could the killer be - Stefano ? The country doctor Roberto (Luc Merenda), who seems to take a little too much interest in the girls ? Or even Danielle's uncle, who is suppoed to be in PAris - but is he ? However, we soon learn it can't be Stefano, since he shows up at the villa's doorstep - quite dead. & since the killer is already here, he decides it best to do some more killing & slaughtering all the girls, too, except for Jane, who went to bed early & who he didn't knopw was around too. The next day, Jane is pretty shocked by the corpses of her friends she finds in the living room, but even more so when the killer returns to the villa to saw apart the bodies to better bury them. Luckily she is able to hide from the villain, but once he leaves again, she has to realize she is locked in ... & while she desperately tries to attract the attention from just about anyone, the killer does come back (sawing up three bodies is a rather time-consuming job after all), & he becomes more & more aware of the presence of someone else in the house, until he finally finds Jane ... & he turns out to be - Franz (John Richardson), Jane's boyfriend and art-teacher, who kills because of some childhood trauma, & now he has to kill Jane, who he thought pure & perfect, too, but luckily it is then that Roberto stops by the house again & can finally throw Franz off a cliff.

 

Extremely well-done giallo that doesn't relie on the whodunit element too heavily - the solution of which is rather disappointing anyways - but has an extended suspense-scene with the main girl locked in with the killer as its center-piece, that draws the movie away from the otherwise rather familiar plot. Plus, the direction of the movie is very atmospheric & creepy, with Carol's murder in the woods being a particularly well-done sequence.
