Mino (Franco Nero), son of the Countess (Olga Solbelli) is set to marry young Laura (Erika Blanc), even if this is against his mother's wishes, who has a borderline incestuous relationship with him. So the good Countess asks her maid Marta (Gioia Pascal), who's secretly in love with Mino, to see to it that Laura has an accident ... and wouldn't you know it, the next time Laura takes a drive, her brakes don't work, and she has that little accident and dies. Incidently, Mino is the first at the scene of the accident ... and incidently, Laura's corpse is gone before the authorities arrive.

Meanwhile back home, Marta and the Countess get into a fight because the Countess refuses to let MArta marry her son, instead fires her, which ends in Marta throwing the Countess down some stairs to her death - which also looks like an accident.

Days, maybe months later: To overcome his grief, Mino decides to go out, and he gets lucky when he's able to pick up a stripper (Marina Morgan), whom he takes home and shags in the room he once shared with Laura. But when the stripper pulls away the sheet of Laura's bed, she finds the corpse of Laura, perfectly mummified by amateur taxidermist Mino ... and when she starts screaming, he strangles her.

Startled by the scream, Marta rushes into the room, but when she finds the dead stripper, she is not at all surprised or shocked but helps him get rid of the corpse.

Days later, Mino picks up a prostitute - with pretty much the same results. Marta realizes she has the upper hand and threatens to leave Mino, unless he marries her. Mino, who quite obviously can't cope alone, gives in to her demands ... until Daniela, Laura's little sister and a splitting image of her, arrives at Minos residence, and Mino immediately falls in love with her and forgets everything he has promised to Marta ... but he also starts losing grip with reality, starts to call Daniela Laura and believes that his mother is still alive. Marta soon realizes all of this must be Daniela's fault and tries to kill her with a knife ... however she is stopped cold by Mino who kills her instead. Trying to get away, Daniela stumbles upon Laura's corpse, which is more than she can handle, and she faints ...

When Daniela comes to again, she sits in the car next to Mino who has clearly lost his mind, has become convinced that she is Laura and that they are going to marry - but to keep her from running away, he has a gun pointed at her.

Ultimately, he stops the car at a beach in the middle of nowhere and tries to rape her, when the police - whom Daniela has somehow managed to notify - finally arrives to arrest him. Mino at that point is so gone that he doesn't even realize what happens ...


This little seen thriller from Italy was quite obviously inspired by Hitchcock's Psycho, without ever achieving that film's brilliance. In fact, Il Terzo Occhio is a rather dull little film that is much too caught up in its way too constructed narrative to really create suspense, to a point where even the more shocking moments of the movie - like the stripper finding Laura's corpse - fail to really shock.

In all it's a rather disappointing little film, but at least it features a powerful performance by Franco Nero ... and it has most certainly inspired Joe D'Amato to Buio Omega, one of his better gore films.
