Another Paul Naschy gem.

This mystery/horror film was partially financed by a Japanese company once funding for these kinds of films was drying up in Spain.

Naschy is Bruno Rivera, a hit man working for the Yakuza who double crosses the mob and steals a hugs cache of diamonds. His lover, a beautiful Japanese woman named Mieko hunts him down with mob members. Bruno kills them all including Mieko's brother. Mieko vows vengeance.

In the battle Bruno is shot and very near death. He collapses and when he regains consciousness he finds himself at an estate run by a kindly doctor who happens to have two very beautiful daughters living with him as well as a sexy black woman who takes care of them all.

The daughters, Monica (Silvia Aguilar) and Alicia (Azucena Hernandez) both fall for Bruno as he is slowly healed up. Bruno is haunted in his dreams about Mieko and before you know it Mieko has caught up with him, but she gets a very tragic surpsrise which I will not spoil here.

An even bigger surprise is in store for Bruno as he tries to make his final escape. The story builds slowly and there is a lot of mystery as a killer stalks the area around the house. That may sound pretty ordinary, but this is no ordinary movie.

I will not give away the ending, but it wraps up everything pretty well and you even get a final shocker in the last 10 seconds of the film!!

The doctor named Dom Simon (Lautaro Murua) has a very interesting and twisted sexual relationship with his housekeeper Raquel (Roxana Dupre) and it will shake up some of the PC crowd as he whips her and tells her he is her Master, but in reality it is Raquel who has turned the household into what it is.

The Blu-ray looks fantastic and is part of the "Paul Naschy Collection". Highly Recommended!!
