a routine giallo
2 July 2005 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

Susan Scott of "Death walks at midnight" and "Orgasmo Nero" fame stars in this fairly unremarkable entry into the giallo genre directed by Maurizio Pradeaux. She witnesses the murder of girl through the telescope(just don't ask, see it for yourself), but fails to see the face of a killer(who's dressed in typical giallo fashion:black hat, black coat, black leather gloves n' stuff). With the help of her boyfriend (Robert Hoffman from Lenzi's "Spasmo") she starts her investigation, while the killer proceeds to cut the witnesses throats with a straight razor. There's nothing special about this movie: it's pretty much a routine giallo with little originality about it. You've got all the usual stuff here: violent murders, weird characters,crazy plot twists. But there's still something missing. First - suspense, cause the movie is pretty damn low on thrills. Second - sense of style. What kind of giallo is this without stylish locations? The story is supposed to be taking place in Rome, but it looks like it was mostly shot in some dirty village. No gorgeous architecture,just old shacks and stuff.OK, there was Fulci's excellent "Don't torture a duckling" set entirely in a small village, but I consider that one to be more of a thriller, than a giallo. And again about style - the camera-work. It's the most upsetting thing about the movie. Throghout the film it's mostly flat and uninspired, with lots of pointless zooms. and occasionally out of focus - just like in your typical Jess Franco flick(see his "White cannibal queen" for a perfect example). Only during the murder scenes the proceedings seem to look a little more lively with some nice camera angles. The murders are gory and quite well executed ,still far from perfect though . And last yet not the least - the music. The score for the film composed by Roberto Pregadio("White cannibal queen" -too much of Franco references for one review, huh?) isn't progressive or groovy or pounding or anything at all. It's just typical. Oh, I almost forgot: there's a good deal of nudity in it but personally I think the girls were unremarkable except for Susan Scott. Hoffman who was just excellent in "Spasmo" and Scott do what they can with the material they're given, including some hysterically funny dialogue. The supporting cast includes Simon Andreu and Luciano Rossi who's always played demented creeps in westerns and police films. But this time this excellent actor is wasted just as one more red herring... OK, the film in general ain't not that bad,still worth looking for giallo fans but it had a potential to be a lot better. If you want to see the same cast in a decent film, I recommend that you watch "Death walks at midnight", you'll see what these actors are really worth.
