Another cool Giallo,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sette Scialli Di Seta Gialla (AKA Crimes of the Black Cat)  [DVD] (DVD)The story..A blind pianist overhears a conversation of what he thinks is a plan to murder someone and the next day a woman is found dead. As more bodies begin to pile up he begins an investigation of his own as the police aren't coming up with anything.
This 1972 Giallo is a lesser known piece of work but it's still very good and full of everything you'd expect from the genre. It's stylishly directed, has a good story and it contains many tension filled scenes. The killings are not really gory, that is with the exception of one death near the end that is actually very bloody and brutal. The film is entertaining pretty much all the way through, has a great score and a good suspenseful finale. Recommended.
The picture quality isn't great but it's still fine to watch and it's in Italian with English subtitles. This doesn't normally bother me but the subtitles are tiny for some reason which is quite annoying. The back cover says it lasts for 108 minutes but in fact it goes on for 90 minutes which is the right length of time for the type of film.
