The legendary Torso (1973), considered one of the precursors of the slasher genre, was directed by Sergio Martino following the success of All the Colors of the Dark (1972), featuring a stunning soundtrack composed by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis also known as Oliver Onions. "I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale" was directed in 1973 by the italian Thriller specialist Sergio Martino ("il tuo vizio è una stanza.", "lo strano vizio della signora Ward"). With time passing the movie has become a little cult movie, especially in America, released with the title "Torso". Placed in the city of Perugia, the plot tells about an university female student (Suzy Kendall) stalked by a cruel serial killer. In this movie Martino pushed the pedal on the most extreme gore and splatter.the victims, differently than the movie's Italian title do not reveal traces of carnal violence, but are mutilated with very close up details. The long central part of the plot, where the character played by Kendall and her girlfriends, escape the murderer and refugee in a isolated house, is a classic. The girls, protagonist's friends, are killed by the madman and the bodies are made in pieces. The girl is forced to watch the slaughter hiding herself behind the furniture. This particular scene is rich of tension, shooted magistrally by Martino who confirms his talent in shooting tension movies. The score was assigned to bothers Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, and now Dagored presents it in a complete version and in full stereo from the original 1973 master tapes.
