Arrow goes to town on their new Blu-ray edition of  the 1973 psycho-sexual thriller movie Torso by Italian cult film director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion’s Tale).

Suzy Kendall and company are stalked by a killer in Torso.

Starring Suzy Kendall (To Sir, With Love), Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and John Richardson (One Million Years B.C.), Torso concerns a series of sex murders that shock a college campus, prompting four beautiful young girlfriends to head for the safety of an isolated country villa. But as they succumb to their own erotic desires, their weekend of pleasure becomes a vacation to dismember at the hands — and blade — of the lecherous maniac.

Originally released in America with much of its controversial violence removed by censors, the Torso Blu-ray arrives from Arrow with a brand new 2K restoration of the film from the original camera negative.

The package contains the following bonuses:

  • New audio commentary by Kat Ellinger, author of All the Colours of Sergio Martino
  • New video interview with co-writer/director Sergio Martino
  • New video interview with actor Luc Merenda

  • 2017 Abertoir International Horror Festival Q&A with Sergio Martino
