The Killer Must Kill Again (1975) aka L'assassino E Costretto Ad Uccidere Ancora aka Il Ragno aka The Dark is Death's Friend aka The Killer Must Strik

A different sort of giallo in that it's actually extremely clear plus we know who the killer is pretty much right off the hop, it's just what will happen next that drives this one. It's actually rather colorful and comedic surprisingly but it doesn't seem to cheapen the film, it just gives it character. It also helps that Antoine Saint-John is one naturally creepy and snake-like creatures I've ever seen. The story is about a man who watches creepy snake-like guy push a car into the river with a body in it. In exchange for silence he asks for the guy to off his wife in the same fashion (as she won't give him a big allowance). Things are going swimmingly until a young couple out to have sex (well one of them is) take off with the car (that still has the body inside!). It's pretty much fun throughout and well it definitely made me laugh a few times and although it's not excessively bloody it's rewarding. Quite an interesting little film that most should enjoy (even non-giallo fans).

Availability:  On DVD
