This interesting film has a sordid history with me.

All of my life I have been subjected to very poor quality copies of this movie and it really affected my opinion of it. Now TUBI has a beautiful print and I have to say, I enjoyed this twisted film.

A young man named Juan (Renaud Verley) is released from as asylum where he has been wrongly sent by his evil aunt Marta (Viveca Lindfors) so she and her three daughters could steal his money.

He comes back to the family home and gets a job in a local slaughterhouse. He quits the job after a brief time and when asked why he simply states "I've learned enough".

This leads to a bizarre game of cat and mouse between Juan and the four women. He bulids a mini version of the slaughterhouse in his basement and in time he manages to get all three of his aunts daughters into the room.

He plans to kill them just like cows and chains them up naked, but her cannot proceed. His moral compass just won't let him. There are several more twists to the film before the conclusion. I still believe something is lost in translation with the dubbing, but maybe it's just me.

I really like the bizarre quality of everything in the movie and while the slaughterhouse footage is real and gruesome it didn't bother me as much as othewrs I know who have seen this movie.

If you're looking for something a bit different you might want to check this out.

The rest of the cast includes Maribel Martin, Nuria Gimeno and Christina Von Blanc.
