LUC MERENDA | Offscreen
Luc Merenda (°1943), a French actor with Italian roots, is one of the best known faces of the poliziotteschi genre. His several collaborations with Sergio Martino include “Torso” and “The Violent Professionals”. He also played the lead in many other films, such as Fernando Di Leo's “Shoot First, Die Later” and Duccio Tessari's “Puzzle”.
Sergio Martino pulls out all the stops in this highly stylized, ultra-violent giallo classic about a serial killer who hides behind a ski mask to strangle beautiful young students before slicing them up with a bow saw. The many suspenseful scenes in this scary whodunit will have you gasping for air.
Police inspector Giulio Caneparo (Luc Merenda) takes justice into his own hands to avenge the death of his boss, who was on the trail of a gang of bank robbers. All bets are off and anything goes in this indictment of Italian fascism and political chaos.
