Spoilers follow ... - 7 Murders for Scotland Yard review by NP

London has rarely looked more magnificently seedy than in the openings shots of this José Luis Madrid directed film. Rainy, grainy and simmering with promises of blatant sleazy sex.

Paul Naschy plays Pedro. Having played a variety of monsters and horror characters, Naschy had become known as ‘the Spanish Lon Chaney’. As Pedro, he is the crippled victim of a circus accident, who spends his time limping around seedy London pubs, picking up fights and horrendous cockney prostitutes.

It isn’t long before he is suspected of carrying out gory, Jack-the-Ripper-style murders. His fight to prove his innocence to Scotland Yard’s finest is what fuels the film.

Sadly, it is all very drab and never attempts to rise from that. Flatly directed (apart from the rain-swept London panoramas), the interiors were shot in Barcelona and Rome.

As always, the dubbing puts a wall between the characters and the audience, but even with that in mind, the performances seem very perfunctory. Naschy in particular gives us no reason to invest in Pedro and his apparent innocence. Against this, there are a few nicely gory scenes and the finale has some tension to it.
