Blonde Barbara Bouchet has reason to believe she's in line to be murdered
18 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The actresses in this film definitely carried the ball over the goal line in memorable performances. They were helped by a script that allows them plenty of action that's very out of the ordinary but not too far out, because it reflects deep emotions and motives. This movie gives them plenty of room to all hang out. It's this that adds to the bizarre murders and adds to the entertainment value.

The plot moves forward quickly, adding surprises at a rapid pace so that only with close attention can you figure out what might be going on. I give myself credit for figuring out some of it and for forecasting what would happen.

The story starts with a kind of curse on a family, which is that every 100 years 1772-1872-1972 (the year of the movie's action), one sister will kill the other sister, the killer being in red. Bouchet is the blonde sister. She thinks that she has circumvented this curse because her brunette sister is dead, and she thinks she has done it. Needless to say, the situation is much more complex. There is an inheritance, not to be revealed for a year and there are other siblings. Plus Bouchet is a photographer involved with a man who is in a fashion house management, and there is a cluster of people in that milieu, all of whom have motives for murder.

It's an enjoyable giallo with more than enough plot, characters and surprises to keep you guessing. The ladies are never afraid to flaunt their goodies, in various states of dress and undress. The music is catchy. The castle has a crypt. The women can be as vixenish as you can imagine. Quite a show.
