What Have You Done To Solange? is a very underrated and brilliant giallo directed by Massimo Dallamano based on the work of Edgar Wallace.

Fabio Testi plays a philandering professor Enrico Rosseni at a Catholic Girls' school. While he is fooling around with beautiful student Elizabeth in a boat, she witnesses a murder. Initially dismissing her claims as avoiding him, the body count starts piling up and he finds himself as the prime suspect.

The film is known for some fabulous music by Ennio Morricone.


This film provides examples of:

  • Phallic Weapon: The killer drives a knife into his victims’ vaginas.
  • The Reveal: All the victims except Hilda and Elizabeth held orgies. Solange happened to enter one of these and got pregnant. She then underwent abortion forced upon by other girls which was performed by Ruth Holden due to which she suffered from immense psychological trauma rendering her mute and catatonic. Prof. Bascombe, her father found out and decided to execute his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.


How well does it match the trope?
