The film is notable for its use of sepia tones and slow wide angle shots to build a sense of impending dread. It was released in Italy in October 1980 and in America in early 1981 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists. It was one of the last combined U.S.-European production made for general release, and featured final screen appearances from Sylvia Koscina and Lino Ventura
