Also known as 'Vortice Mortale', a police detective investigates the alleged murder of a man. A woman claims she found the dismembered man in her washing machine, but no clues remain. As the investigation unfolds, the detective is drawn into a web of deceit and murder by the dead man's lover, Vida, and her two sexy sisters, Sissy and Ludmilla. An erotic thriller from infamous Italian director Ruggero Deodato, it is very well-made, atmospheric and it has some really sensual scenes. The acting is good (Polish actress Katarzyna Figura shines as one of three bizarre sisters). Plus there's an unexpected and rather shocking dismemberment scene which reminds one of Deodato's brilliant 'Cannibal Holocaust'. Add to that a creepy atmosphere reminiscent of 'Dial Help' or 'House on the Edge of the Park' - and you have a not-to-be-missed thriller!
