When young couple Stefania & Luca move to their new house by the sea, little do they know their neighbour Alberto has just strangled his wife in the bathtub. But unfortunately, when Albertop goes out to dig a grave for the corpse, he forgets to turn off the running water & lock his door, so Stefania & Luca soon notice the water coming through the ceilingand go upstairs to bring it to Alberto's attention, & when he's not in decide to take turning off the watter into their own hands ... only to find the corpse.

They are not able though to either phone the police (their line is not connected yet) or drive to the city for help (their car is stuck), thus decide to just sit it out. Unfortunately though, Luca has forgotten his lighter upstairs & has thus go upstairs to get is in order for Alberto to not grow suspicious. Then though Alberto comes back, & Stefania tries to involve him in a conversation in order to prevent him from finding her hsuband in his appartment. To little avail, though, since Alberto has already found out about everything, knocks them both out & ties & gags them in order to later kill them too. The next day though, a moving truck with Stefania's & Luca's stuff arrives, & Alberto has quite a hard time toconvince them the couple never arrived, & only does so eventually ... until the movers hear the baby cry ...

 

Despite the fact that the ending of the story is given away way too soon, this is a very good psycological thriller (especially considering it is merely a tv-featurette), relying mainly on beautifully executed suspense techniques. & while the participation of Dario Argento as both producer & presenter of the series would suggest another giallo story, this has actually more to do with American Noir-thrillers - & director/ writer Luigi Cozzi even quotes acclaimed noir-author Cornel Woolrich as his main influence.
