Morirai a Mezzanotte (1986)

Morirai a Mezzanotte (1986, ITA) C-88m. ** D: Lamberto Bava. Starring Valeria D'Obici, Leonardo Treviglio, Paolo Malco, Lara Wendel, Lea Martino. Typical giallo (made well after the genre's heyday) about police inspector Malco, who must deal with a killer that is after women. Can he get help from profiler D'Obici, especially since his own daughter may be among those targeted? Mario Bava's son Lamberto pays tribute to his close colleague Dario Argento by including references to his films, and the result is an interesting thriller. Some heavy-handed scenes are offset by pulsating score by Claudio Simonetti (member of Goblin). For fans of this kind of stuff (who won't mind the second-rate plot). Script by Dardano Sacchetti and Lamberto Bava (as John Old Jr.). English titles: MIDNIGHT KILLER, and YOU'LL DIE AT MIDNIGHT.
