Diabolique (8/10)

I’ve listened to so many commentaries on my various giallo DVDs that cite this movie as one of the primary touchstones of the genre. The plot follows two women who devise a plan to kill their mutual husband/lover. Things don’t go as expected and we are left wondering if he is still alive (or undead). I mostly enjoyed the film and the moody climax is the real reason to watch, but it felt a bit too slow to warrant the two hour running time.
