Edwige Fenech in "The Case of the Bloody Iris": the epitomy of the blonde girl concept as we know it today.
I apologise to the fans, but the certainly beautiful brunette offers quite an appalling spectacle in this rather mediocre giallo.
The Giallo genre is often criticised for showing women as objects, which is a comment I usually strongly disagree with. But in this particular case, I would be proven wrong.
Jennifer (Edwige Fenech) is all but a woman in control in this film. In fact she really goes through the story completely clueless, confused, sexy, screaming and driven by her emotions all the time. A caricature.
The film itself is alike: gross and formulaic. Highly predictable.
An embarrassing proof that sadly, sometimes, the Giallo genre was able to make a fool of itself.
Who directed it? Anthony Ascott. A fake name.
Having said that, there are good things about this film too, but I wanted to start by expressing my disappointment. Read also Michael Mackenzie's point of view in his "Giallo Collection" review.
