DELIRIUM (Lamberto Bava, 1987) **
23 August 2006 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

The younger Bava's films never scaled the heights of his famous father's influential work; this giallo is a largely mediocre effort (the one good example from the sub-genre to emerge during this decade was Dario Argento's TENEBRE [1982]) with little to hold one's attention

  • apart from the actresses' physical attributes and especially star


Serena Grandi!

Here, the director even borrows a page from his father's book by utilizing the oft-used fashion-house setting (providing a cheap excuse for ample gratuitous nudity). He even strives for a distinctive color scheme during the murder scenes, but the killer's POV produces a weird gimmick involving the victims wearing laughable make-up and underscored by equally exaggerated sound effects!

The cast (including Daria Nicolodi, George Eastman and Capucine), at least, provides enough suspects to keep the audience guessing and the electronic score by Simon Boswell isn't too bad either, under the circumstances.
