"Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll"
Just been watching this much reviewed Giallo. I'll add some notes later, but suffice to say that after a slow start this did live up to its genre. Funnily, a film whose title actually makes sense (in a way). There's a lot that reminded me of Lenzi's 'Eyeball", although that was made two years later in 75. I'd recommend it for containing the usual themes (and a bean faced Paul Naschy), it's not exactly a thriller and when you've seen a load of these films it's not going to be a headache working out who dunnit but it's a bit of fun getting there.
I also noticed that there were a lot of bared bosoms in the first half, but they disappeared when the murders started happening.
