Back when I reviewed The Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970), I compared that film positively to examples of the giallo genre (that’s the Italian crime/slasher genre of the late ’60s and ’70s, in case you didn’t know) in which not only was the plot nonsensical, as was par for the course for these movies, but the direction didn’t rise above the screenplay. And here we have Watch Me When I Kill (1977) as a convenient example of the latter! Thank you, boxed set from VCI Entertainment, for covering the range of the giallo!

Also: This week’s choices for Reader Revenge Month are The Divine Enforcer (1992), Django (1966), and The Tenement (2003).
