Blood of the Orchids
20 February 2010 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

I first saw "Seven Blood Stained Orchids" about 3 years ago and I remember being extremely surprised by it. In a good way, that is. This was the first Umberto Lenzi film I saw that was actually really good and showed a lot more style than his trashy & gory outings from the 80's. I was initially to give this movie 8/10, but I had to subtract one point because I guessed who the killer was before the final scenes. And that's a bit too bad, because this is a really good giallo with a solid mystery story that makes sense. The good thing was that I only knew who the killer should turn out to be, and not what his relation was to the events and the characters. So there are enough interesting things happening and plot elements to keep you going. The music was simply groovy as hell. I would love to own that soundtrack . In recent years I've caught up with quite some giallo films, and "Sette Orchidee Macchiate Di Rosso" sure remains a winner! The odds are even very likely that when I re-watch this baby, I just might chip in an extra point again.
