MINI-SKIRT MURDERS and SCHOOL GIRL KILLER (edited
Antonio Margheriti (as Anthony Dawson)
starring Mark Damon · Elenora Brown · Sally Smith ·
Patrizia Valturri · Michael Rennie
corpses are piling up at St Hilda's Girl for Girls, leaving the top
cop Duran (played by Michael Rennie) with more than the usual suspects.
Co-written by Mario Bava (who also began shooting the film before Antonio
Margheriti was hired to direct), this is one of the early Giallos. As
such, it has also been copied by numerous subsequent filmmakers. For
example, the opening bathtub murder sequence was borrowed verbatim for
the murder of the Cristine Galbo character in WHAT
HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE?.
And both Dario Argento and Sergio Martino borrowed huge segments for
Suspiria and CARNAL
Margheriti made 60 movies between 1960 and 2000 in a wide variety of
genres, from action/adventure to horror, from erotica to spaghetti westerns.
He is best known for the perverse thriller (made a couple years before
this one) THE
VIRGIN OF NUREMBERG and CANNIBAL
APOCALYPSE. Mr Margheriti died from heart failure at age 72
in November 2002.
