A serial killer with a strange fixation for running water is killing
the employees of Gisella Montani's (Amanda) modelling studio, models &
photographers alike. At first noone really seems to worry all that much,
but when it once hits Gisella's own husband Maurizio (Franco Diogene), a
certain panic arises ...
Eventually, photographer Carlo (Nino Castelnuovo) & his assistant
Magda (Edwige Fenech) start to have an idea about what's going on, but
instead of calling the proper authorities, they - in typical
giallo-tradition - decide to take up investigations on their own - but
their first guess proves to be wrong when they find their prime suspect
dead & mutilated, but what's worse, the killer is now after them ...
Eventually though, Carlo & Magda manage to overcome the killer,
& it turns out to be - Patrizia (Solvi Stubnig), a model with the
agency, whose sister, also a model, had once died in an abortion initiated
by the agency ...
This giallo (= a specifically Italian version of the serial
kilelr murder mystery) has nothing of the elegance you would expect from
the masters of teh genre like Dario Argento or Sergio Martino, nor does it
show any resemblance to Blood
and Black Lace, a sort of proto-giallo by Mario Bava also set in
the model world.
But then again - even if some publications have one think otherwise -
not all giallos were masterpieces, & Strip Nude for your Killer
is definitely from the sleazy end of the genre: The characters are almost
exclusively horny models who can't wait for an opportunity to lose their
cloths, & photographers who only seem to be in the business to get
wirls into their beds. Likewise, the story is just a feeble excuse to show
a lot of nudity & a little violence, & the fetishistic all-leather
motorbiker attire of the killer just proves this point.
Don't expect anything resembling a good story here, let alone character
development - hell, the characters have hardly more than one dimension as
it is -, but if you are open for a piece of mindless sleaze, than this
might still be your film !
