"Ciao Daddy!"
12 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Italian stinker with a misleading title that tries to make you think it's a horror movie when it's not. The plot's about the kidnapping of a government agent's daughter. Of note only for the appearance of Boris Karloff. Unfortunately he is dubbed by someone else so we don't even get to enjoy that distinctive voice of his. Not that it would have mattered much. Despite the dubbing, using mostly actors with monotone deliveries, the biggest problem is the movie is just unbearably dull. Worth watching for a few laughs at the awful dubbing for the little girl, I guess. Otherwise avoid unless you are a Karloff completist.
