Strip Nude For your Killer follows the standard Giallo format made famous in Italy during the late 60's through the 70's, A typical stalk and slash film with murder mystery overtones as opposed to the tried and true Hack and slash teenagers format made famous in the U.S. during the same time. For the most part Giallo films focus more on atmosphere and scenery as opposed to jump scares and graphic kills, Although this one gets pretty brutal at times. The film opens with a botched abortion procedure where the pregnant woman dies during the operation and the doctor calls a friend to help him move the body back to her house to cover up for his mishap.
Then following a funky score and opening credits we see the doctor from the operation brutally stabbed to death by a figure wearing motorcycle gear.
After this opening scene the abortion is never really even mentioned again until much, much later and the story begins as we meet Carlo, A photographer for a modeling agency which shoots for high fashion such as vogue and so on. He tries to smooth talk a would be model and seduces her into sex in exchange for a modeling shoot and promises of high fashion success, This is where we learn what a slime ball the films Hero is. Unusual as most films would want to paint the main character as a good guy this one takes a different approach. While at the agency we meet the rest of the group and for the most part everyone in this film is slimy , snobby and oversexed which I suppose is at least a more accurate approach then portraying them as all warm and fuzzy.
Magda (Edwidge Fenech) is a Female photographer who wants to be a model so she tries to seduce Carlo into shooting her and Thank goodness for this because we get to see her nude for the first time of many in this film and she is absolutely stunning.
From here the questioning from the detectives continues and Gisella starts to look like our main suspect in the killings, especially after receiving a anonymous call from someone demanding a large ransom in exchange for not going to the cops with some important information regarding the murders.Meanwhile Gisella's Husband a heavyset pervert Mauricio is offed after trying to cheat on Gisella with a model from their agency again further solidifying the idea that Gisella is behind the killings.
Story: 6 ( not anything groundbreaking for the genre, but not bad)
Characters: 6 (Same as above)
Gore: 7 (Not over the top,yet graphic enough to please todays blood thirsty fan)
Nudity:7 (Plenty of nudity in this one, I think every woman in it bares herself at least once and Edwidge Fenech.....Yes Please.)
Overall: 6.5 out of 10 (Nothing to innovative but a good starting point for those interested in the genre,Will also keep the interest of the Purist as well)
