    Watch Me When I Kill

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Antonio Bido also directed the giallo The Blood Stained Shadow, which I tend to enjoy more than this one. However, how great is the title of this film?

    A pharmacist is murdered and Mara, the woman who saw the killer leave the scene, is now being stalked. Her boyfriend Lukas, being protective, decides to figure out who the killer is and soon learns that it’s anything but a normal crime.

    New York City in 1974 must have felt like the end of the world. Based on the 1972 novel by Brian Garfield, Death Wish was the answer. In fact, in many theaters, the audience stood up and cheered as Paul Kersey got his bloody revenge for the crims visited upon him and his family.

    The film we're about to discuss went through many twists and turns as it made its way to the screen. Originally, it ended with the vigilante…
