Giallo and fumetti.
27 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

"A Hyaena in the Safe" by Cesare Canevari is an obscure Italian giallo/fumetti that predates Mario Bava's "Five Dolls for an August Moon".Six keys.One of them is lost and the criminals begin to stalk and murder themselves in the web of deceit.I enjoyed this very psychedelic slice of Italian dementia.The acting is fine,the murder scenes are imaginative and some scenes are downright surreal.The women are very beautiful and lethal and there is even a little bit of nudity(a glimpse of breast).The film was obviously made on low budget and the result is impressive to watch.Unfortunately my Italian copy is worn-out,so it's the highest time to release the film on DVD.7 out of 10.For fans of "Ten Little Indians" inspired gialli.
