Did You Know?

Six degrees of Diabolik; in 1965 British director Seth Holt set out to make a film out of the Italian comic strip Diabolik, casting Jean Sorel and Elsa Martinelli, who play Dr. George Dumurrier and Jane as Diabolik and his lover Eva Kant. The film never got beyond the planning stage although photographs of the duo in costume survive. When Mario Bava successfully brought Diabolik to the screen two years later, Marisa Mell, who plays, Susan/Monica, starred as Eva Kant.See more »

a top notch sex and psychedelic dressed mystery, 16 March 2007
Author: christopher-underwood from Greenwich - London

This may not be a horror film or even strictly a giallo but still it's a top notch sex and psychedelic dressed mystery that is a must see for fans of mid sixties to mid seventies Italian cinema. Perhaps more restrained than one might expect from Fulci and the pace a little uneven but this film looks so good! Great cinematography with splendid sweeping scenic shots of San Francisco and playful quirky close-ups that make one gasp. Full of delights such as the photo shoots, the nightclub sequences as well as the splendid use of the locations plus a super soundtrack from Riz Ortolani and not forgetting plenty of colourful nudity. The conclusion is sensational and the death row sequences suitably creepy and if there is more than a whiff of Hitchcock, whose complaining? Excellent.
