ReceptionEdit

In his book Italian Crime Filmography 1968-1980, Roberto Curti noted that "the sociological ambitions end up in excruciating banalities, such as the confrontation between Mancuso and his poor but honset wife (Nicoletta Rizzi)"[3]

The score by Gianni Marchetti was re-used partially in the films Emanuelle's Revenge by Joe D'Amato and SS Girls by Bruno Mattei.[3]
