Tame, but still enjoyable Jess Franco thriller
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

While not exactly the consensus of opinion, I actually found 'Un Silenzio de Tumba' to be a rather magnificent, enjoyable and surprisingly chaste Jess Franco thriller. The low-key, Agatha Christie-style pot-boiler concerns the fervid, and soon to be murderous goings-on during a not-so swinging soiree held on a isolated island retreat. Franco really delivers on the escalating tension and creepy atmospherics here; many erroneously simply think of him as a hyper-psychedelic T & A man (and, to be far, he might well be the best!) but he was also a highly skilled filmmaker, and I genuinely feel that 'Un Silencio De Tumba' is ample proof of his fine artistry. 'Un Silencio de Tumba' is a racking yarn, and would certainly be appealing to all obsessive, euro-cultists and uber-biased Franco obsessives alike! Top Hole! (And like many other laudable Franco efforts this also boats a tremendously effective score)
