I just picked this little gem up recently and had the pleasure of finding out what a great film this is. I was unfamiliar with the director, and wasn't sure what to expect. The film is filled with clever camera work and symbolism. The soundtrack too is wonderful. I did not miss the mighty Morricone while watching this giallo. Morricone has scored many films like this and has created a style all his own for these sort of films. Even though I noticed some Morricone-like melodies, the score overall was original, with well placed moments of Tchaikovsky's piano concerto. If you have already seen all the Argento, Fulci and Bava giallos, then by all means do not miss this one!
