Nice Mr. A. They've got color, splash and pizaazzzzz. They certainly do make me want to check out the films even if I can't read some of the titles. I want to see "Lizard in a Woman's Skin." What a play on words. I'm a Florinda Balkan fan. I'll check YouTube again. Just can't afford to buy anything right now.

It's really pitiful what film posters have become in the last two decades. They used to be something special.

I've recently been revisiting the work of Umberto Lenzi, who made gialli before the likes of Argento and Fulci, but has never received the same critical praise, or evaluation. Eyeball AKA The Secret Killer (1974) might be his best camerawork and use of visual style, which is somewhat ironic, considering it deals with a killer who cuts out the left eye of victims after stabbing them to death.

Giallo has a history of fascination with eyes--whether it be close ups, or actual mutilation. Lenzi's film seems to explore this by making us look at life and question what we see. The film also takes place on a sightseeing tour of Spain and the opening credits use freeze frames that are later explained in the context of the film, giving us images to read with our eyes and hold in our minds.
