Camille Keaton means business in What Have You Done to Solange?

Camille Keaton means business in What Have You Done to Solange?

In the mystery-thriller film, a sexually sadistic killer is preying on the girls of St. Mary’s school. Curvy student Elizabeth (I Spit on Your Grave’s Camille Keaton, in her debut feature) witnessed one of the murders, but her hazy recollections of a knife-wielding figure in black do nothing to further the police’s investigations. Why is the killer choosing these young women? And what does it have to do with a girl named Solange?

Also starring Cristina Galbo (Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue) and Fabio Testi (I Spit On Your Grave), What Have You Done with Solange? features all the hallmarks of classic gialli – the amateur detective, the black-gloved killer, nubile victims – as well as a lush score from the legendary Ennio Morricone (1900).
