HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERon 20 September 2010
If Matt Helm or Derek Flint made a giallo, it might turn out something like Five Dolls for an August Moon, one of Mario Bava's least-regarded films by his aficionados but for me far more enjoyable than some of his classics. A Ten Little Indians number planting three rich industrialists, an inventor who won't sell his new formula and assorted wild women (lesbians, nutters and schemers among them) on an island where someone's killing their way through the cast list and everyone's a suspect, Bava seems to be playing this one with his tongue firmly in his cheek. "Looks like we're all going to end up subzero," quips one character after another victim ends up hanging in the meat locker, pretty much setting the tone: it's silly, but it knows it's silly and just runs with it. The swinging island pad probably makes more of an impression than any of the cast and none of it makes much sense, but even though there's not much in the way of grand guignol or surprises it's an engagingly undemanding hour-and-a-half. And remember - animals NEVER talk when you shoot them with sodium pentathol...
