          The UK one I posted a link to is fully uncut for the record. And even has a restored scene* missing from other prints. (*Not that important mind. ) Although some hardcore fans weren't happy with the tag-line used on the DVD cover "WHERE WHORES MEET SAWS!" I think it's brilliant myself!

                In fact, I love this motherfucking movie so much that I have decided to watch it tonight. Unfortunately my copy is from some Scandinavian country... so the restored, undubbed parts are not subbed, only the English dub is available, and the only subs are Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and German. Oi vey.

                  Food for thought...

                  The motor pool used for the filming of Miraglia's THE RED QUEEN KILLS 7 TIMES was also used for TORSO. Same white VW Beetle, same orange Peugeot.

                      Oh definitely. RED QUEEN is one of the best films in the giallo cycle, easily. TORSO, while it is a blast, is not quite as good.

                        I personally prefer Torso to Red Queen, but love them both. I also love Miraglia's The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave; very under-rated IMO.

                          I love all three, but for me it would be Red Queen>TNECOofG=WHYDTS? just slightly > Torso

                          It's all a matter of .005 really.

                            Ok so I gave Torso a chance cause of all the hype and ultimatley it was overated. original plot and decent concept with a good soundtrack but....The plot turns really slow halfway. several deaths look really fake (come on, having your head hit by a car wud CRUSH it ) it becomes confusing to tell which charecter was who aswell 2.5/5

                              I'm really happy to see someone else talk sensibly about this movie. I had high hopes for this one, I'd heard a lot of great stuff about it, but it really was just pretty bad. The plotting of this movie was seriously GLACIAL. Almost nothing happens plotwise until we get to the end sequence of the film in the chateau. The movie isnt even shot in a particularly stylish manner. The conceit of the film, that the killer takes a saw to the bodies of his victims is only realized in the very last murder which is highly disappointing, as it's the only murder sequence that is inspired at all. Suzy Kendall is rather good in the film, but really, Sergio Martino is not at the top of his game in this one and this is not so much a gialli (as the mystery/intrigue aspect is minimal) and, as has been said already, more of a slasher, albeit a very unrefined one at that. It almost felt episodic in the worst sense of the word. One murder, then another, than another, then they leave town and hole up in the chateau for the end sequence. Its reputation is undeserved.

                                You can blame American distributors for that.
                                It's original title was "Carnal Violence"/"The Bodies Presented Traces of Carnal Violence"

                                I personally think the finale in the chateau is one the most suspenseful I've seen in a giallo thus far
