Aldo Lado, Italy, 1972, Arrow Films, Cult

“Director Lado continued to push the Italian thriller into new terrain with this stylish, melancholy shocker.”
— Nathaniel Thompson, MONDO DIGITAL

This classic giallo directed by Aldo Lado (SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS) is notable for its haunting atmosphere, twists and turns and parallels with another great Venetian horror/thriller – Nicolas Roeg’s DON’T LOOK NOW. Sculptor Franco Serpieri (George Lazenby) welcomes Roberta (Nicoletta Elmi, DEEP RED) – his young daughter from a failed marriage – to Venice, unaware that a disturbed child-killer is stalking the city’s canals. When Roberta’s body is found floating face-down in the river, the lives of Franco and his estranged wife Elizabeth (Anita Strindberg, THE CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL) are ripped asunder. Released at the height of the giallo boom, this gripping mystery thriller boasts some of the most iconic names associated with the genre on both sides of the camera. Co-starring Dominique Boschero (the iguana with the tongue of fire) and featuring one of the all-time greatest scores from maestro Ennio Morricone, WHO SAW HER DIE? thrills anew in a new restoration.
