Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews When we learn the identity of the killer and his motive, the story seems nothing less than ludicrous. Rated: C+ Jan 28, 2008 Full Review Michael W.

Stephen C By 1978 the giallo film was fading fast Dario Argento had gone all out gothic with Suspiria and his imitators were left floundering. That said this is a pretty solid thriller with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. A series of murders in the shadows of Venice and of course a black gloved killer,it's all pretty good But of course Dario did it better Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Overlong, derivative, and almost totally lacking any suspense whatsoever, the best part of this incredibly average giallo is the score. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A giallo you'll surely enjoy watching..! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A professor and his priest brother solve a plague of murders on an Italian island outside Venice. The kind of mystery where the screenwriter hides the identity of the killer by keeping any meaningful clues away from the audience for as long as possible, making it difficult to care about the story. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The best giallo soundtrack ever. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid giallo thriller is entertaining enough, with its lurid plot twists and atmospheric setting. But despite a few offbeat moments, it's a bit too routine to be among the best. Fans of the genre will enjoy it, but it's not one to get anyone initiated. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
