"Night of the Assassins" is an atmospheric Spanish giallo made by a prolific exploitation filmmaker Jesus Franco.The the film is largely based on a book by famed English crime novelist Edgar Wallace.The plot of John Willard's famous 1922 stage play "The Cat And The Canary" is an inspiration too in which a group of greedy relatives gathered at a spooky old mansion for a will reading are systematically murdered by a masked killer who's concealed identity holds the key to the macabre mystery.The assassin wears a human skull mask and is particularly merciless."Night of the Assassins" is an atmospheric and stylish giallo with very good performances and the aura of creeping mystery.The killings are bloodless and the lack of sleaze may be disappointing for fans of Franco's graphic exploitation,but I enjoyed this little macabre film.8 out of 10.
