Viewing Notes

Been wanting to watch this for a while so when it popped up on my recommended titles I just hit play. Really like most of this movie and it’s a solid giallo up until…

*SPOILER*

*SPOILER*

Nieves Navarro (aka Susan Scott) is killed. Then it turns into mostly a procedural / whodunit murder mystery, which is fine but the movie really cooks when she’s onscreen then drops a level when she’s not so the second half the movie is the detective and her former lover trying to solve her murder. Not surprised I was able to guess who the murder was early in the movie so I was pleased when this proved true.

Still need to see DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT but I wouldn’t mind owning that Blu set that came out a while ago w/both films.
