DEATH STEPS IN THE DARK (1977)
DEATH STEPS IN THE DARK (1977)

'Death Steps In The Dark' finaly has a pristine transfer, sound and picture are crystal clear.  Excellent giallo from Maurizio Pradeaux. While his 'death carries a cane' is better known, I found this 1977 outing to be far more entertaining than the latter. Not only do you get the requisite full-frontal nudity ubiquitous in the genre (inc. a splendidly gratuitous Sapphic montage near the opening of the film!) the film has a light, comedic touch not generally found within the idiom; so amongst al the black-gloved, razor-wielding frenzy (the murders are considerably full-blooded) the film is leavened by a clearly sardonic tone, which, while admittedly far-from subtle, adds a viable quirky sheen to the generally humourless genre. graphic razor-slashings, gratuitous nudity, plentiful guzzles of j&b (the veritable elixir of Italian exploitation!) and a mesmerizing, booty-humpin' jazz-funk score by riz ortolani makes 'death steps in the dark' one of the more memorable and re-watchable gialli. Whether or not the film was specifically designed as a giallo parody doesn't detract from the more lurid pleasures gialli are infamous for; since 'death steps in the dark' makes for such a serviceable, briskly-paced, sanguineous whodunit.
