The Red Queen Kills Seven Times
us title: The Red Queen Kills Seven Times
year: 1972
director: Emilio Miraglia
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score
91

This Giallo looks good on paper, but fails to deliver more than one or two memorable moments. Save this one for later.

Bottom Line: For Completists Only
As long as you've seen eveything else, this is worth a look.

Eyeball
us title: Eyeball
year: 1975
director: Umberto Lenzi
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score
83

Umberto Lenzi's final Giallo, released at the beginning of the genre's decline, is predictable trashy fun with a great soundrack by Nicolai.

Nothing ground breaking here, but a fun time nonetheless.

The Case Of The Scorpion's Tail
us title: The Case Of The Scorpion's Tail
year: 1971
director: Sergio Martino
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score
82

Martino’s second Giallo is his most conventional and fires on all cylinders with stylish direction, a complicated script by Gastaldi and a great Nicolai score.

Bottom Line: Must-See
A quintessential example of the genre.

The Case of the Bloody Iris
us title: The Case of the Bloody Iris
year: 1972
director: Giuliano Carnimeo
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score
77

Despite many recycled story elements, “Iris” is successful in its ability to entertain and titillate. Having Fenech in the cast doesn’t hurt!

Bottom Line: Entertaining
Nothing ground breaking here, but a fun time nonetheless.

Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key
us title: Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key
year: 1972
director: Sergio Martino
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score
64

Martino's final experimental Giallo is an off-beat thriller that combines recycled elements of his earlier films with gothic horror to create one of the most unique films of the genre.

Bottom Line: A Worthwhile Deviation
Breaks some important rules and comes out on top as a result.

year: 1972
director: Sergio Martino
composer: Bruno Nicolai
Giallo Score

Martino continues to challenge the conventions of the genre with his third Giallo that is sometimes referred to as Giallo-Fantastique because of its supernatural overtones.

Bottom Line: A Worthwhile Deviation
Breaks some important rules and comes out on top as a result.
