Rare giallo with Paul Naschy.
7 September 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Some Nazi killings during World War II seem connected to a string of present-day murders committed by masked assassin clad in black.Are they based on revenge or is there another motive?Both civilians and police try to solve the mystery.Marcel Petiot was a French doctor and medical serial killer convicted of multiple murders after the discovery of the remains of 26 people in his home in Paris after World War II.He is suspected of killing more than 60 victims during his life."The Crimes of Petiot" is very loosely based on his story.This rare giallo with Paul Naschy is suitably bloodless.The masked killer dressed in black murders his victims with pistol Luger.The snowy setting is pretty atmospheric as is the score.6 out of 10.
