Description: The stunning Edwige Fenech (THE CASE OF THE BLOODY IRIS, THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH) stars in this infamous shocker that packs more grisly violence and sexual depravity into each frame than most any other film in the entire giallo genre. There s succulent flesh aplenty as a mysterious killer dressed in black leather and wearing a motorcycle helmet begins butchering beautiful young fashion models with no mercy and one deranged request: STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER! Nino Castelnuovo (THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG) and Femi Benussi (HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON) co-star in this sleazy 70s classic directed by Andrea Bianchi (BURIAL GROUND, MALABIMBA), now presented in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative!
A leather-clad killer who hides his identity under a motorcycle helmet goes on a depraved killing spree in this unabashedly... sadistic giallo directed by Andrea Bianchi (Burial Ground) and starring Nino Castelnuovo and Femi Benussi. A fashion model has died while receiving an illegal abortion, and after the abortionist is slain, the black-clad killer begins targeting the deceased model's former co-workers. One by bloody one the models begin to fall prey to the mysterious killer, and all of the crimes have one thing in common - the victims were all forced to strip nude before meeting their grim fate.
A 1975 giallo movie that follows in the footsteps of such Dario Argento classics as Deep Red, this one features colourful, baroque set design, and plenty of style, but is hampered by bad acting, a threadbare storyline and lousy dubbing.

Strip Nude For Your Killer looks decent, if not stellar, on Blu-ray from Blue Underground. It appears as many might anticipate - no gloss, modest sharpness but pleasing contrast. It doesn't sport as much grain as we have seen from the distributor. This is only single-layered but there are instances of depth and no undue noise. There is no damage and I thought it looked okay. This Blu-ray offers a consistent presentation that excels over SD. Hopefully the screen captures will give you an idea.

English subtitles for Italian language version
Blue Underground offer both the English language and Italian versions via decent DTS-HD Master 2.0 channel stereo tracks at 1564 kbps. It sounds okay with the expected sync-issues of post-dubbing present. I actually find that kind of charismatic. There is some depth that punches out of the front speakers and it comes with enough force to surprise. There are optional, bright yellow, subtitles (see samples above) in French, Spanish, English and English for the Italian version.My Momitsu has identified it as being a region FREE disc playable on Blu-ray machines worldwide.
Supplements include a 12-minute 'Strip Nude for Your Giallo' which includes interviews with actress Solvi Stubing and co-writer Massimo Felisatti. It is in 480i. There is also both International and Italian trailers in HD and a poster and stills gallery.
