    My Dear Killer


    Decent giallo from Tonino Valerii starring George Hilton concerning a mystery revolving around an old kidnap/murder case. Though there is some obvious and unneeded dialogue, the story is solid enough, there is a great kill involving a handsaw and Hilton is strong in the lead as per usual.

  • Nightfall



    Late cycle crime noir with an excellent pedigree as Jacques Tourneur directs a Stirling Silliphant script based on a David Goodis novel. The cast is B-level, but solid with Aldo Ray and Brian Keith squaring off and Anne Bancroft caught in the middle. James Gregory also appears as a dedicated insurance investigator. The film has elements that recall classics such as Hitchhike and On Dangerous Ground but works well on its own. The only downside is the generic TV-grade music score.

    Perfectly paced, great costumes and awesome atmosphere thanks in large part to the Barry Devorzon synth score. No matter how many times I watch, it never gets old.
