S10 Reviews: Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye (1973)
16 November 2005 | by (The Void) – See all my reviews

S10 Review: * * * / * * * * * Seven Deaths in a Cat's Eye is about a young and innocent school woman who comes home to her family's Scottish castle. She comes home to find many of strange thing's going about a veritable smörgåsbord of soap opera plots going on, her mothers in financial ruin and needs to sell the castle, a mentally unstable cousin with an equally unstable monkey pet, a live-in doctor trying to help the cousin while he messes around with the aunt, a French tutor who is more likely a French nympho and to top it off a killer trying to off everyone else. Good heady stuff in this giallo by Antonio Margheriti (Cannibal Apocalypse). Yeah the script is a bit soapy and takes a bit of it's own sweet time to get going but Seven Deaths in a Cat's Eye does is photographed very well and the music score excellent (by Riz Ortolani of Cannibal Holocaust fame). The acting is a bit tough to judge is dubbed fare but it does what it needs to with no major stinking on-board.
