a high-class party in Rome, there's a deadly assault. Andrea, an alcoholic
investigative reporter is assigned the story. Through his research,
Andrea discovers a new murder seems to happen every Tuesday. At each
crime scene, a black glove is left with a finger cut off for each victim.
By the time the fourth murder occurs, Andrea believes he's making progress
in the case, but the police think he may be a suspect. Plus, his investigation
has put him and a loved one in danger.
Director Luigi Bassoni always makes an incredible looking film, usually
the result of working with some of the industry's best personnel (this
time his cinematography is done by Vittorio Storaro, future Oscar winner
for The Godfather). Unfortunately, Mr Bassoni wasn't very prolific.
He spent much of his career working on short films and documentaries.
Prior to this Giallo, he worked with his cameraman brother Camillo Bazzoni
in the Spaghetti Western arena, including A
LONG RIDE FROM HELL with Steve Reeves. In 1975, he delivered
his masterpiece, the bizarre SciFi mystery FOOTPRINTS.
Mr Luigi Bazzoni died from a stroke at age 82, March 2012.
