What a bloody fun experience! 'The Case of the Scorpion's Tail' is an impossible puzzle, and is so with purpose.
This film serves to take you on a violent, shocking, thrill ride.
The build to each climax is short, simple and damn effective. As is the set-up for the plot. A woman is granted 🧐 one million dollars 🧐, others want that hefty sum and will do anything to get their sweaty hands on it (and probably a half-naked woman in the process).
Shown through cinematography creative as anything, lots of gratuitous unappealing sexytime and unexpected conveniences is the violent, shocking, thrill ride exactly as intended.
Thanks to the wonderful Lara for putting this one (and all Giallo really) on my radar. She's not only one of the best writers on Letterboxd, but one of the kindest, most thoughtful people.
