    Action and excitement, fantastic animation and Caroline Munro. What’s not to like?

    And don’t forget to tie up your camel.

    Yet again Mario Bava delivers the goods. This is an excellent gothic chiller with some pretty startling imagery thrown in. I was also delighted to discover that I unwittingly paid homage to this film in a student project back in 1993 when I made a film of myself running through a room over and over again, caught in a loop.

    It is unfortunate the the English language title is somewhat misleading as it sounds more like a Eurospy or fumetti. Mind you Operazione Paura is not much better.

    Arrow's blu ray presentation is fantastic, as usual.
