The director had to prove in court that the dogs in question were fabricated and not real. Florinda Bolkan stars as the woman with all the clues to murder. Stanley Baker is the unlucky police inspector who has to separate what is fact from fantasy.

All Movie Guide
This intriguing effort from Lucio Fulci's "giallo" period is worthwhile for fans of this oft-psychedelic genre. The storyline enthusiastic piles soap-opera melodramatics, crazy plot twists, red herrings, bad-trip dream sequences and a healthy lashing of skin and blood. Fulci's direction lives up to the story's fever-pitch thriller theatrics with a barrage of baroque visual trickery, using everything from split-screens to colorful optical effects to keep the viewer off-kilter. His pacing lags a bit around the midsection as things slow down into a somewhat more conventional murder-mystery style but this is compensated for by the frequently breathtaking setpieces that punctuate the film: highlights include the unnerving yet erotic dream sequence that kicks off the film and nerve-wracking foot chase through an abandoned church. He also makes great use of an excellent "Euro-cult" cast, including an intense turn from Florinda Bolkan as the troubled heroine and Jean Sorel's mysterious turn as her icy, secretive husband. The payoff for the mystery isn't as slam-bang as one gets in other giallo films -- in fact, the denouement is surprisingly subdued -- but A Lizard In Woman's Skin is a wild ride that offers plenty of bizarre moments that will stay stuck in the viewer's mind.
