In psychedelic swinging 60s style, the dreaded thief (and killer) Diabolik wreaks havoc on a generic European country for his own financial gain and amusement. He shares an extravagant underground lair (and a giant bed of money) with his curvaceous, superficial girlfriend...who uses her awesome powers of wig-wearing to help Diabolik kill innocent people and steal billions from the government. Nonetheless, Diabolik is the "hero" of the film because he must face off against bumbling cops and revenge-seeking mafiosos. Written by

Did You Know?
This film was produced by Dino De Laurentiis
(later responsible for the infamously mammoth King Kong
(1976) and Hurricane
(1979)) and its #3-million budget was much more than director Mario Bava
was used to and enabled him to work with more money and a much more prestigious cast than he normally did. Howeer, he remained true to his principles, relying on imagination rather than money, and brought in the film substantially under budget, at a mere $400,000. De Laurentiis was so impressed with Bava's saving him so much money that he offered Bava the opportunity to make a sequel with the leftover funds, but Bava had by then tired of working with the producer and decided to pass.

Apparently what takes the railroad workers 5 minutes to weld Diabolik would have to sweat for 2 days to open. See more
