Rorret

Directed by Pulvio Wetzl. Starring Lou Castel.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., July 12, 1991

Castel plays a Peter Lorre-fashioned psychopathic owner of the Peeping Tom Cinema where he watches the female patrons of his horror movies from behind the screen. He later stalks them to recreate the frights in this 1987 Italian creeper.
