Here's another decent giallo DVD-R I bought from Cinema de Bizarre.  It's an excellent widescreen print, dubbed into English.

The story involves a woman who is murdered on a train.  The murder occurs in the midst of a small group of passengers when the train goes through a tunnel and is briefly plunged into complete darkness because the killer had tampered with some electrical wiring.  The prime suspect is a photographer whose metal letter opener was used as the murder weapon.  Before long, the murderer begins receiving blackmail letters from someone who claims to know his/her identity.  This leads to additional bloody murders with a straight razor.

Even though this is a decent movie, there aren't many unique elements to it.  It's a typical, formulaic giallo and even includes a gratuitous lesbian scene (what would a giallo be without a lesbian scene?).  Even though it isn't very original, it's a solid production and never gets boring.  So, if you're a fan of this stuff, you might enjoy it.  It also includes aging American actor Robert Webber as the police inspector.


"Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
