A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin (9171)
Director: Lucio Fulci
Main Stars: Florinda Bolkan, Stanley Baker, Jean Sorel
Storyline: A woman is being blamed for the murder of her neighbour after she dreamt it.
Review (Spoils): Carol Hammond (Florinda Bolkan) is one messed up woman she keeps having dreams of having sex with her female neighbour downstairs and taking some massive drugs and having orgies (actually this sounds like a cool thing). But the problem is when she started to have these messed up dreams people started to die. She is being framed or she possibly killing in her sleep in a freaky lesbian nympho way?
What’s more fun than a good horror film filled with murder? Well one that is a trippy drug infested orgy!!! Carol is so open about her dreams and erotic ones in her diary that she becomes a suspect to the murders. We have stabbings, wet dreams, hippies, bats, throat slashes and some serious drugs.
Basically it is a who did it murder film filled with classy sex and drugs. Florinda Bolkan does an amazing job and uses her facial expressions and the camera to show the trouble that she is thinking. She battles the conflict of what seems wrong and embarrassing for her and also yet enjoyment.
Rating: This is not one of Lucio Fulci gory films but instead it moves more like a Dario Argento film. This is not a bad thing as the film is more of murder mystery with a wicked shot of acid. This is not going to be a average horror fans cup of tea but if you love the 70s era of horror it just might be.
