Vicious psychopath Helmut Berger breaks out of jail with three colleagues and goes on a score-settling killing spree in one of the most shocking crime thrillers ever made in Italy. Berger is on top form with his pitiless depiction of a homicidal maniac - so devoid of humanity he truly chills the spine - who kidnaps and brutalises an informer's girlfriend, played by spaghetti sex siren Marisa Mell. Director Sergio Grieco highlights the mean-spirited violence and sexual sadism - ferocious beatings, quicklime torture, razor-slashings - with a lip-smacking prurience that the squeamish will find sickening. Yet the undeniable energy contained in this action-packed, blood-soaked pulp fiction is raw, lurid and startlingly effective. A masterpiece of sorts - if you can bear to watch!
