This is a rather different sort of giallo film. The thing is it's really more of a grim fairytale than anything! The story is about a painting which has a picture of 2 girls, one stabbing the other and it's about the legend of the "Red Queen". While the painting is hung we meet two little girls who get in a vicious fight over a doll who end up in a rather odd situation. The thing is, it's not totally bloody but it's still got nice shares of death, it's really the vivid colors and the creepy nature of the film's villain that makes this work ever so nicely. It may not please those looking to solve a puzzle so much as those willing to experience a creative and interesting story. Recommended for those looking for something a little different!

Availability:  On DVD (but OOP) as part of this box set
