This is the story of an alleged murdered pimp that is found in the household of three women’s washing machine. As a result, an inspector is called to the scene and tries to investigate where the murdered person is or if indeed there was a murder.
There are a few scenes which show severed limbs. These scenes are predominantly seen towards the end of the film. However, as a whole, there is very little blood or gore incorporated into this film.
The Grave Review
At first glance, you may think that this is a horror film about a killer washing machine. But, The Washing Machine, is actually a crime/mystery story.
Through all the nudity and sex scenes that are shown in this film, the story actually would not be bad. But there are too many unnecessary scenes that complicate the main storyline. All I know is, the inspector in this film is one lucky guy. He is being seduced in every other scene in both a public and private venue. The true gem of the film is how beautiful the women are. Other than that, The Washing Machine offers very little in terms of substance.
Most Italian horror films seem to always showcase beautiful women in risqué clothing or lack thereof. The Washing Machine is no exception to this rule. If you are looking for a traditional horror film, this may not be the one for you. However, if you like the giallo-style films with beautiful naked women, this will be one you should check out.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives The Washing Machine (1993) one and a half grave out of five graves.
