Obviously, a serialkiller is roaming an upscale appartment building,
using a setsquare as a bizarre (but all the more deadly) murder weapon.
artist living in the building, Mirta (Florinda Bolkan) learns about this
... and persuades Donatella (Elisabetta Rocchetti), a former student of
hers who has since become a drug addict, to euthanize her using a
setsquare, as she (claims she) is terminally and doesn't want to spend her
last years in pain. As compensation, Mirta offers Donatella her life
But when Donatella finally does the killing, it isn't Mirta
she stabs but her maid (Rosaria De Cicco), who has been blackmailing Mirta
... and when Donatella now tries to at least get the money for the hit
Mirta has tricked her into doing, Mirta is doing her best to evade her -
and Donatella can't even go to the police with her story, because after
all, she has killed a woman. So she does a little investigating on her
own, and soon she finds out that the actual serialkiller is Nicole (Eva
Robins), a singer working on her comeback, who has just killed her agent
(Elisabetta Cavallotti) - and now she makes sure that Nicole and Mirta
meet one night to battle it out against each other, each of them thinking
she's actually fighting Donatella who's blackmailing her.
police inspector Rita (Mirca Viola) is investigating the case, but is
getting nowhere, when her superior Visconti (Antonio Petrocelli) gets a
guy (Guido Berti) presented by Nicole as a tailor-made suspect. And since
Visconti wants to close the case as quickly as possible, he plays along
with Nicole. Still, Rita continues her investigations on her own - and
after a tip from Donatelly she arrives just in time to witness Nicole and
Mirta slaughter each other ... But was there maybe a third killer?
Nero can be seen as a half-mad street preacher who has little impact on
the actual proceedings.
A murder mystery full of twists and
turns that tries very hard to be a modern day giallo - and fails to leave
too much of an impression, actually, even if has all the typical giallo
ingredients, like a ridiculouosly convoluted plot, unlikely plottwists,
quite a bit of sex and nudity, and of course bizarre and violent murders.
But of course, one mustn't forget that not all gialli were masterpieces,
in fact a great many of them were just trash - and Bad Inclination is not
much more than trash either.
