Synopsis:
When Mara (Paola Tedesco) stops by at the chemist to pick up some painkillers she's unwittingly signed up for a prescription in terror and a world of pain for those around her! Told to come back another day, little does Mara realise that the chemist is lying dead in the back of the shop and she's bought herself a stalker determined to wipe her out now that she's a witness. Bido weaves a web of one nod and a wink after another to any fan of Argento's most baroque thrillers with skilful murder set-pieces of his own and a soundtrack that could easily have been performed by Goblin.
Intricate, suspenseful and satisfying, Bido applies his own visceral vision to the art of giallo film-making and pulls off a stunning bloodied gem.

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2017

Another enjoyable entry into the Italian giallo genre, although this veers more towards ‘solid’ than spectacular. The locations are less arresting than usual in these films, but there is a fine conveyance of squalor and run-down industrial landscapes which, when located within the rolling landscapes, provides a particularly stark backdrop to the gloomy events.

I think the word ‘gloomy’ covers things really. There are no real standout characters; no Edwidge Fenechs of Rosalba Neris, or even a stubbornly chauvinistic male hero to hiss at. We have instead, nice Lukas, played by Corrado Pani, who attempts to investigate the dark goings on.

Paola Tedesco plays Mara, a young dancer, who witnesses the murder of a local pharmacist. A string of killings then take place, all nicely staged. ‘Watch me When I Kill’ is a decent rather than engrossing giallo that only occasionally captures the sinister atmosphere of others of its type.
