mike p (mx) wrote: Revelations of A Sex Maniac to the Head of The Criminal Investigations Department is a standard giallo with nothing new to contribute to the genre other than its literal titale translation which is cool. But the film has good direction and is as sleazy as they come. One character and obvious red herring wirks as a morticians assistant and loves his work and who ever the actor is does a great job at creepy and pathetic.Not essential veiwing but loads of fun. And the killers look is ripped off of Blood And Black Lace.
