This giallo ghost story hybrid centers on a maladjusted wedding dress designer (Steven Forsyth) who habitually kills his gowned clients post-nuptials, haunted all the while by the spirit of his overbearing wife (Laura Betti). With his cleft chin and cool, calculated approach to serial murder, Forsyth’s John Harrigton is a clear precursor to American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman.
