Abstract

A cultural-critical analysis of the self-reflexive horror strategies at play in this notorious Italian exploitation film from 1980. The argument centres upon the dual discourse at the centre of the film's mode of address, which simultaneously critiques and capitalises upon its gruesome and salacious representations of death and suffering.
