Description: Psychologist Herbert Lutax works in the police. He took the most active part in the investigation of serial murder of young girls. Moreover, he is a murderer. Tired of the double life he was going to surrender to justice, but suddenly he has a competitor in the field of serial murder.

Director Renato Polselli (Last Chance for Life) had a low budget to work with on this film, but he masks this brilliantly with an array of stark and contrasting colours, which give the film it’s arty credentials, and provide some truly stunning imagery for the viewer – case in point; the sequence that sees a young woman strangled in a bathtub full of bold blue water! Mickey Hargitay gives a strong lead performance and always convinces as the psychopathic doctor. He is joined by Polselli regular Rita Calderoni, who looks hot in the role of his wife. The plot is complicated, and the director doesn’t always seem keen to provide the viewer with a story, as the focus is always on the brutal murders and scenes of sexual torture, which can mean that it gets a little dry at times. But it all comes good by the end, as despite the fact that we know who the killer is from the beginning; Polselli still manages to pull a couple of surprises out the bag! The ending takes in all the main characters, and I won’t hesitate to say that the final fifteen minutes are as good as Giallo gets. Overall,¬†Delirio caldo comes highly recommended to Giallo fans as there’s nothing else quite like it!
