Sort of a female "Easy Rider"...

So I'd been trying to see this, waiting for a copy (after it'd been OOP for some time) for a few years now... being a fan of cult film in general, I think it was first brought to my attention when a friend mentioned that it was regularly screened as silent visual background atmosphere at one of the L.A. night spots he worked at (I believe the downtown Standard). Anyway signed up here in June, and it finally became available just the other day (to give you an idea). And while I can't say that it was entirely worth the wait, it was still an interesting time capsule to 60's filmmaking... colorful psychedelic editing, a sometimes unintentionally funny performance by Faithful (talking to herself out loud and whipping her head around wildly), and a healthy dose of scenic European countryside and leather-clad sexual appeal. Quaint, not altogether memorable, but worth a look if you can find a copy.
Have to agree with the AllMovie synopsis...

As a giallo fan, I'd been curious to check out this exploitation title for a few years now; at the very least I knew it to be a bit of a "Grindhouse" staple (and one of the main films that Robert Rodriguez and Tarantino had shown to their cast of that 2007 group effort while trying to give them an idea of what they were making). Nonetheless, despite some scenic Italian settings and attractive female victims, I found this overall to be a fairly bland and uninteresting exercise. The killer itself doesn't have a particularly interesting M.O./weapon, the "detective work" is pretty laughable, the film seems to jump between a number of different leads, the stupidity of the protagonist only takes the tension away from the climax, and the final fight is a bit of letdown (yep, noone getting a chain dragged through their neck here...). Probably really only worth seeing if you're a dedicated student of the subgenre.

I beg to differ; the "flying guillotine" movies are classic schlocky martial arts flicks, if anyone's ever had the chance to see them. "Master of..." is a definite classic of the genre, and "Fatal Flying Guillotines" isn't bad either. I caught this one several years ago on a video bootleg and have been meaning to see it again. Whoever's currently holding on to it, I hope it'll be back in circulation soon!!
