In the realm of Italian horror films director Pupi Avati is a highly unique stylist. Both The House with Laughing Windows, (1976) and Zeder (1983), were really weird and filled with intense psychological insight. In Balsamus l'uomo di Satana (Blood Relations) (1968), he starts out and finds his stepping. It is a weird film, full of hidden duplicity and double-dealing. There are killers who are unseen and clues to be found.
It is a very rare film and if you can find a copy of it, I suggest if you enjoy these types of Italian films in the veins of Dario Argento or American, British or other thrillers such as Psycho, Vertigo or Peeping Tom, then pick it up.
I was lucky enough to get into a private screening in Italy, courtesy of the director's family.
