Not quite a hidden treasure, but a worthwhile unknown Giallo
30 December 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

The Killer with a Thousand Eyes is a Giallo of the extremely rare variety - amazingly I could find almost no literature whatsoever about it on the internet and it seems almost like the film doesn't exist. In my time of tracking down seemingly non-existent films, I've realised that there's often a good reason for the anonymity; but this Giallo is actually rather good and a step up from director Juan Bosch's better known 'The Killer Wore Gloves'. The director is not particularly well known for his originality; his other Giallo basically took the genre's best elements and fashioned a derivative story out of it, and that's basically what we have here too. Our main character is a special detective who has been deployed to Lisbon in order to investigate a series of murders. After looking into the murders, our hero realises that they are somehow linked to an illegal drug smuggling operation and so sets about looking into that in order to solve the murders and stop the smuggling from taking place.

This film boasts what is undoubtedly one of the coolest titles in the entire Giallo genre (which is really saying something) but sadly it bears no relevance to the plot and in fact that murder story takes a back seat to the police investigation. This is actually not a bad thing, however, as Juan Bosch keeps things ticking over nicely and the film is made exciting with a constant stream of events to further the plot. There's only a handful of murders in the film, and unfortunately they don't represent a strong point for the film as they're all bloodless and it seems like the director wanted to get them over and done with as quickly as possible; which is likely to disappoint a lot of viewers. By 1974, the Polizi genre was gaining popularity and that seems to have had an effect on this film; as there's plenty of police procedure as well as a handful of fist fights. The director manages to keep things together for the ending, and while it's not especially exciting; things are wrapped up nicely. Overall, this is not great or a must see Giallo; but it's a nice genre entry and has more going for it than The Killer Wore Gloves. Worth a look if you can find it.
