    Escape from Miami version. Actually preferred this version in a lot of ways.

  • Beyond Evil

    Beyond Evil

    ★★½

    Unfortunately ends up feeling like less than the sum of its parts. The positive (Saxon/Day George combo, the Pino Donaggio score, some fun effects) get lost among flat drama scenes with characters we don't really care about and confusing writing (the extent of Day George's possession and how conscious it is, is never really clear). The fun parts are certainly fun but the rest drags and is generally unengaging. A shame for a concept with such promise.

    Crazy Desires of a Murderer

    ★★½

    Possibly the least sexy giallo-sexy you’ll ever see but gets a extra half star for Italian Colombo meets Tony Soprano who manages to steal the show. The mystery is no great shakes either. C+

  • Murder Mansion

    Murder Mansion

    ★★★★

    Spanish Scooby Doo meets The Old Dark House, which aims for giallo-horror but lands pretty wide of that target. Very silly but constantly enjoyable and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome. B+
