7 Murders for Scotland Yard (1972)

Directed by José Luis Madrid
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

A killer is stalking prostitutes and other low life women in London. His penchant for removing organs gets him a modern Jack the Ripper moniker. The chief suspect is trapeze artist Paul Naschy, whose wife is one of the victims. Other possibilities are an impotent school teacher and even the chief inspector from Scotland Yard who is having an affair with the school teacher's wife. The killings are rather nasty, with close-ups of knifes cutting into flesh. However, with (at least) seven of them, it gets rather monotonous, and the identity of the killer is not too hard to guess.
