Entertaining Gialli with a likable performance from the delicious Gillian Hills
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Entertaining Gialli with a likable performance from the delicious Gillian Hills; who unwittingly lets out the flat above to a somewhat nefarious character and this acts as the lurid catalyst for many bloody deaths, and equally gaudy red herrings. Outside of the London exteriors what interested me most about 'The Killer wore Gloves' is the fiery beat/prog sounds of Marcello Giombini, his thunderous, Goblin-esque soundtrack must surely be ripe for a release at some juncture?This rich, jazzy and eclectic soundtrack really lifts the admittedly prosaic plot into something quite special, well, for me anyway. This remains quite an obscure Giallo, no doubt due to the lack of cinematic flair or invention from Herr Bosch; but the luminous presence of Ms. Hills and the magnificent funk jazz riffs of the maestro cine-groove Giombini should really make this one funky Gialli to track down; should your interests lie within the giddy realms of the mid-seventies Italian slasher. Right, time to peruse my MP3 collection to see what Giombini can be unearthed later today!
