I really enjoyed it.
14 October 2013 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

My own copy of this boasts a wonderful box front depicting Farley Granger and Erika Blanc, the one currently shown here, was, I believe the video box and is terrible. So having reviewed the box what about the film! I really enjoyed it. I didn't really think all the, is she real, did she really, is it in his head, business really worked, although it was novel that the person who maybe crazy was not Carol Baker but the guy, Farley Granger.

I don't really rate Granger either so, on the face of it, my score looks rather high. Thing is Erika Blanc is on top form, seducing anything that moves and slipping out of one fantastic costume after another. Soundtrack is also fine, sweet sub Morricone and typical for the period. This is not a top notch giallo but if you love this sort of thing or Blanc or both then it is unmissable.
