"Knock knock" "Who's There?" "Gial" "Gialwhoo?" "What?"
17 April 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hey girls! When undressing in your room, it's a good idea to make sure the light source is between you and the window, and not the other way round. That way you may not attract so many stalkers and potential murderers.

Carla does not heed this warning, and get herself strangle one night while heading to her job as a hooker. Turns out her dad is some political big wig and her pimp lady was into all sorts of rackets, which means things get complicated really quickly.

What also complicates matters more is that Carla's killer strikes a few more times (but doesn't get to murder anyone) and every time he's described by a witness as a different famous actor! This confuses the police greatly, and they vent their anger by arresting the massive drugs ring connected to Carla's organisation, and having a few punch ups along the way.

Like all good giallo, this one has a masked killer, and like all good giallo, it strays away from the giallo template by throwing in a few twists towards the end, and blending it in with some Euro-crime business too. I never guessed the ending, especially as my suspect was kidnapped by the killer! It's maybe tame in terms of Gialli (with one murder), but ticks along nicely. I can't believe the same guy that made this also made the crap fest King of Kong Island!
