Some Weird Murder Mystery Horror Stuff
7 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scotland Yard is after a homicidal maniac called The Blue Hand, which is what he uses to kill his victims.

Klaus Kinski stars, so you already know this is going to be weird. There is the use of very vibrant, distinct colors, almost like early Argento but less polished. There is wild music which is more comical than suspenseful. And there is a weapon that looks like a medieval version of Freddy Krueger's glove.

I feel like if this film was touched up and given a decent transfer from a company that cares (like Dark Sky), it would have some potential. But it would still be accidentally humorous and hard to categorize. I would not mind if it was in the original German either.
