After his ex-girlfriend Lida (María Antonia Redondo) has disappeared - actually she was killed by mad artist Klaus Tiller (Adrian Hoven) & his disfigured servant Morpho (Michel Lemoine) -, mysterious Mr Radek hires the girls from Red Lips - Diana (Janine Reynaud) & Regina (Rosanna Yanni) - to find any trace of her ... & soon enough the girls are successful, discovering & stealing a painting by Tiller from effeminate arts collector Napoleon Bolivard (Jess Franco) that clearly shows Lida in some sort of distress & was painted after her disappearance.

Next Regina dresses up as a rich countess & manages to buy one of Tiller's sculptures from a gallery - even though the sale gets the gallery director (Vincente Roca) killed. Then Diana tries her luck to find Tiller in person, & at a night club, she really not only finds him, but is even picked up by him & brought back to his studio ... where Morpho actually tries to kill Diana, & the situation is only resolved when Regina throws a gas bomb into the mix before things get serious ...

But now the girls find themselves in the center of attention - Interpol agent McClune (Chris Howland) is after them, local police inspector Tanner (Marcelo Arroita-Jáuregui), Italian playboy Vittorio Freda (Manolo Otero), and of course, Tiller's killers.

So the girls decide to make an escape to Istambul, but to no avail, it seems everyone has followed, Vittorio Freda - who soon starts an affair with Regina -, McClune & Tanner all seem to be here, & then Freda turns out to be an agent for Tiller.

Eventually though, the girls discover that the sculpture Regina has bought is actually Lida covered in plaster, & rather unexpectedly, they find out they have solved the case. So Diana pays a visit to Radek to bring him his ex-lover ... only to find out that Radek is actually Tiller, who only made up the whole thing to lure Diana into a trap & make her the subject of his ultimate masterpiece (for which she has to die of course). But fortunately, Regina has found out a few things on her own & in the end can interfere & shoot Tiller & Mropho before they can harm Diana ... & the girls have saved the day !

 

At the same time stylish & campy crime comedy, that pays hommage to pulp mainstays of its era in spades: there are the beautiful girl detectives, who are occasionally masked &/or in very revealing outfits, there's the mad sculptor, his hunchback assistant, the ubiquitous Interpol detective, a convoluted whodunnit-mystery, racy convertibles, ... As a whole, Sadisterotica does certainly not rank among Jess Franco's best, but it's still lots of fun.
