Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll

Rating: 7/10

Giallo done Naschy style. Unfortunately that means you have to watch a pig being killed to no good reason. This has none of the visual style of an Italian giallo, but at least offers a decent story about an ex-con who ends up being a handyman for three variously disabled sisters. Of course all the women can’t resists a short barrel-chested Spaniard in Cuban heels. This is all the backdrop to a series of sadistic murders that have Naschy pegged as the prime suspect. I really liked the disjointed version of Frère Jacques that accompanied all the killings, but I think Naschy’s Gothic horrors are a much better fit for him.
