A grim affair with Francis Matthews
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

The legendary Italian genre filmmaker Stelvio Massi takes a rare foray into the heady, be-gloved milieu of the schlocky Giallo with 'Five Women for The Killer'; and for my money it makes for a diverting piece, besides it's somewhat curious seeing the urbane British character actor, Francis 'Dracula' Matthews in such luridly unfamiliar surroundings! The only other Giallo I am aware Massi shot was the much-loved 'The Case of The Bloody Iris' starring the delightful, yet curiously moniker-ed Edwige Fenech. Massi is generally known for his boisterous euro-crime efforts, but he is a more than capable director whose CV boasts some rather exemplary titles. It must also be noted that the sleazy premise is rather unsettling, and the initial murder is a rather grim affair, reminded me a tad of an equally unsavory Joe D'Amato effort. (Absurd etc.)
