Name of a movie possibly set in Venice.

A couple on Honeymoon. They leave their hotel for a night out and get lost in the side streets. Just as they start to get worried a rich guy rescues them and brings them to his large house by boat. It turns out he his a psycho who has been watching them since they arrived in the city. I think he murders the guy but the girl escapes. I think it dates from the 1990's. A river and river taxis feature heavily. Thanks.

One of the most disturbing films I've ever seen. Saw it cold, no knowledge of the plot at all, still makes me shiver.

GREAT movie. Read the book too.
For me it brought back being a little too deep in something a little too weird. Presumably that's mainly a young person's experience. I haven't encountered it in for several decades, but I remember it very well.
