'Das Phantom Von Soho' is a supremely pacy, atmospheric, and surprisingly grisly Krimi
23 January 2014 | by Darkling_ZeistSee all my reviews

'Das Phantom Von Soho' is a supremely pacy, atmospheric, and surprisingly grisly Krimi from the lurid pen of Bryan Edgar Wallace. The burlesque jazz sounds of Martin Bottcher are utterly sublime and not only are the performances uniformly excellent, the brutal stabbings have a decidedly proto-gialli feel. 'Das Phantom Von Soho' is an absolute must for rampant Krimi-headz, and while the overt camp-ness is considerably muted, the grisly, sordid atmosphere, thankfully isn't. This grungy little Edgar Wallace thriller was a real corker, and one of the rare Krimi's that I would happily watch again! And I most heartily approve of the lead actresses's spicy moniker: Barbara Rutting! "Oh, I say!" (Most appropriate for one so lithe!)
