Giornata nera per l'ariete
Luigi Bazzoni (Le Orme) directed this outstanding giallo thriller starring Franco Nero as a hard-drinking newspaperman who gets involved in a string of brutal murders. After he investigates the first, he becomes a suspect himself but eventually manages to unravel a complex plot involving blackmail, adultery, and private sex shows. Wolfgang Preiss plays a creepy doctor, and Edmund Purdom is around as well. The impressive score is by Ennio Morricone, and the film looks great thanks to cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, on his way to his triumph with Last Tango in Paris. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    Top shelf giallo


    well-shot film that rises above the average giallo due to a classy cast and crew. fans of Argento and Fulci should not pass over this one. Franco Nero films are generally among the top Italian productions, and a fan of giallos and Italian westerns & action films should view his other roles as well.
