Spasmo (6/10)

This giallo has been on my must see list for a very long time. Scored by Ennio Morricone, the excellent soundtrack is probably the best part of this movie. For whatever reasons, the film has alluded me. Years past, and the DVD eventually went out of print. Having finally seen it, I can say It definitely is not worth the high price tag one sees on eBay these days. The story is deliberately confusing in the beginning. Was there a killing or not? And what’s with all the mannequins? Eventually it all falls into place, but the revelation isn’t that surprising or even interesting for that matter. Outside of a few of the scenes with the aforementioned dummies, there really isn’t much style here to elevate this beyond a basic middle of the road Italian thriller.
