The film is considered a hybrid of two genres: the giallo and the poliziottesco. The film was one many of the hybrid giallos made predominantly between 1974 and 1975 when the popularity of the giallo was waning at the Italian box office while the poliziottesco were beginning to gain box office dominance.
What Have They Done to Your Daughters? was released in Italy on 10 August 1974 and was distributed by P.A.C.. The film grossed a total of 1,344,301,000 Italian lira on its domestic release.
In his book Italian Crime Filmography, 1968–1980, Roberto Curti described the film as the best of the giallo and poliziottesco hybrids, stating that "Dallamano's direction is well above average" Danny Shipka, author of a book on European exploitation films found the film "doesn't hold as much of a grip as" What Have You Done to Solange? as it focused too much on police protocol, but was still "an intense gritty film that deserves to be seen."
