Special Features

  • International Carnal Violence Trailer
  • U.S. Theatrical Trailer


A group of extremely glamourous college coeds (Suzy Kendall among them) are being stalked by a hooded sex-killer whose weapon of choice is a hacksaw. Despite this perverse premise and an equally sick title (which translates as "The Bodies Show Signs of Carnal Violence"), this remains a rather dull exercise, representing the lower end of the Italian giallo thriller spectrum and lacking much of the violence common to films of the same genre, thus failing to keep its flimsy plot in motion. What gore was present in the Italian cut has been all but wiped out by the film's U.S. distributor. Released on video as Torso. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

    Italians Did It Best

    Everything about this Giallo film is first rate. From the cinematography to the script, to the score... It really holds up even today. It's a marvelous whodunnit with the flair typical of Italian horror cinema of the period. It must also be mentioned that the women in Torso are some of the most beautiful ever to captured on film. Highly recommended.

    A great sleazy giallo horror

    Not as well known as the Dario Argento films but still a very interesting slice of Italian cinema.
