Serena Grandi was a surprise. I don’t know why, but I didn’t except her to be so good. Not that the role has much to offer for her, but she definitive had charisma and talent not to make the part of Gioia boring. The cast was excellent, and maybe that helped her to make such a good job. David Brandon is a fave, always great and interesting. Can make the dullest part quiet spectacular. Karl Zinny is good as the young pervert and Lino Salemme is always sleazy and bizarre...what a face (only a mother could love!). George Eastman and Daria Nicolodi does their job and does it good. But it not the parts we will remember them for.
It feels like a TV-movie, but isn’t...but I felt that Lamberto deep inside just delivered a movie and got the paycheck – even if he seems quiet fond of it. I prefer You’ll die a midnight, one of the best and most entertaining giallos made during the eighties. Give me a dvd of that one! :)
But to get to a conclusion. I liked it. It was a good and entertaining little flick and is well worth a purchase on dvd.
BUT BEWARE!!!! Shriek Show actually reveales the killer on the back of the dvd with a nice, clean shot with the killer and a big, big knife! Stupid morons!
