Who Saw Her Die! (1972)

Battling this stomach flu has been absolutely no fun, as I lack the energy to do almost anything. I have not even had a chance to finish the UFO Detector I am building with the daughters. I have had a chance to watch some good flicks, the next one that was up is the 1972 giallo, Who Saw Her Die!

Plot/ A young girl is brutally murdered somewhere in France. Sometime later, the same thing happens to the daughter of a well-known sculptor. This time the parents (the sculptor and his wife) start investigating, and soon find they are in way over their head. Meanwhile, the body-count keeps rising as the killer now starts butchering all those who find out too much.

This is one of the better and more underrated Giallo’s out there. A film by Aldo Lado, from the opening moments, this one cries atmosphere. Complete with solid tension, a tremendously gripping storyline and some brilliant cinematography, this has everything (including the soundtrack) that makes this genre tick. I will admit that the story may be a bit complicated to truly digest in one sitting, but that is only a minor flaw that does not detract from the overall feel of the movie. In the end, if you love this genre as I do, this one is a great choice and one that should be seen.
