Carol Hammond, the daughter of a wealthy politician, is about to have her seemingly normal life turned into an abyss of terror. Every night her mind is filled with depraved nightmares involving her sexually debauched, voluptuous neighbour. When the neighbour in question is murdered Carol becomes the number one suspect. But what deadly secrets are really hiding behind this sickening mytery? A Lizard in a Woman's Skin is a seminal "Giallo" Italian horror classic. So notorious for its graphic violence and disturbing imagery that its creator, Lucio Fulci, The Godfather Of Gore, was taken to court and threatened with imprisonment. With films such as Zombie Flesh Eaters, The House By The Cemetery, Don't Torture a Duckling, City Of The Living Dead and The New York Ripper, Lucio Fulci has one of the most controversial careers in the history of cinema. despite his flamboyant, cinematic style, dark humour and vivid photography, much of his creative output was immediately banned in the U.K.
