Silly and Disappointing
25 May 2020 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"La morte accarezza a mezzanotte", a.k.a. "Death Walks at Midnight", is a silly and disappointing "giallo". The story and the situations are absurd; the characters are shallow and stupid; and the performances are wooden. For fans of this Italian genre, it is valid to watch the extremely unreasonable situations and deaths if he or she turn off the brain. Otherwise he or she will see an unbearable and idiot movie. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Morte Caminha a Meia-Noite" ("Death Walks at Midnight")
