artist Rolo Puente stars as Rolo Borel, a womanizing pop singer who
performs nightly at the Starlight Theater where his act (involving the
seduction of a showgirl by a lusty vampire) is gaining him much popularity.
However, his female startlets are starting to get brutally murdered
and everyone in the troupe is now under suspicion. Police inspector
Ibanez infiltrates the scene with his [incognito] girlfriend Sonia posing
as a dancer, in an attempt to draw the killer into a trap. He only manages
to put Sonia in peril.
extremely rare Argentinean film from director Emilio Vievra [who made
OF THE VIRGINS a few years earlier] is a wonderful example of
a Euro-styled Giallo mixed effectively with show-biz sleaze. Mr Vievra
- arguably ahead of his time - was a constant target of government censorship
for making films that mixed nudity with violence. After this project,
he inexplicably curbed his style and embarked on a more mainstream approach
to entertainment. For the next 30 years, until his death in 2010 at
age 85, Emilio Vievre concentrated on making movies like Así
Es Buenos Aires [This is Buenos Aires] and television actioners,
i.e. Narcotráfico, Juego Mortal [Drug Trafficking,
film with English subtitles, widescreen print (16:9); totally uncut version
(84 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT.
Extras include Original Theatrical Trailer.
