- Watch Me When I Kill! review by NP
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.
