Cult director Jesus Franco revived the sexy female detectives of the Red Lips Agency (first seen in 1960's Labios Rojos) for this entertainingly bizarre comedic thriller. Diana (Janine Reynaud) and Regina (Rossana Yanni) investigate the disappearances of several models and nightclub performers, leading them to mysterious artist Klaus Thiller (Adrian Hoven). Thiller's sadomasochistic paintings, which lovingly depict the torture and murder of women resembling those missing, make the girls suspicious. When Diana meets Thiller in a nightclub, she must go undercover as one of his models to solve the crime, risking her life in his chamber of horrors. Fernando Garcia Morcillo's wonderful jazz soundtrack, sardonic dark humor, and a cast including Michel Lemoine, Marta Reves, Ana Casares, and Marcelo Arroita Jauregui make this twisted adventure worthwhile and fun. Spanish director Julio Perez Tabernero appears, and Franco makes an amusing cameo as a bumbling security guard. Prints run 92 and 88 minutes. The Red Lips girls returned in Besame, Monstruo.
