A Lizard in a Woman's Skin (Una Lucertola con la pelle di donna)
This cult movie classic, also known as Schizoid, is a psychodrama murder mystery thriller involving LSD, psychoanalysis, lesbianism, and having at least one extremely gory dream sequence which involves eviscerated dogs. The director had to prove in court that the dogs in question were fabricated and not real. Florinda Bolkan stars as the woman with all the clues to murder. Stanley Baker is the unlucky police inspector who has to separate what is fact from fantasy. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The second of [Lucio Fulci's] gialli, and perhaps the most exemplary among the four."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"An absolutely astringent vision of a reptilian world, where even reveries function not as escape but as blueprints for murder"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A stylish giallo that sheds its suspenseful skin long before the story climaxes."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
