A woman, a survivor of a failed murder attempt by a person dubbed "The Half-Moon Killer" by the police, and her husband must find the connecting thread between herself, six other women, and the killer before the killer strikes at her again. Written by
Handsome Antonio Sabato (father of Antonio Sabato Jr of such films as THE BIG HIT) and his wife are on the trail of a cold blooded killer whose only clue is the crescent shaped locket he leaves behind at every murder he commits. The killer has already tried and failed to kill her, will he be able to finish the job? This is just one of the questions that SEVEN BLOOD STAINED ORCHIDS asks. Another is how the hell did I manage to sit through this without falling asleep? I guess it was the funky retro finger painting free loving SWINGIN' SEVENTIES STYLES!! Seriously though, while this film has dated a little, director Umberto Lenzi crafts a moderately engaging murder mystery. Plus there's a fair amount of gore and nudity to engage the rest of us.
