Il Rosso segno della follia (Hatchet for the Honeymoon)

I'm currently making my way through Tim Lucas' fantastic Mario Bava All the Colors of the Dark 
and while I'm reading the chapters I rewatch the corresponding film. Last weekend I got to Il Rosso segno della follia. I know the film has got it's fair share of detractors, but I really like it. I think the role of John Harrington suits Stephen Forsyth well and Dagmar Lassander looks a lovely as ever (even though she's not given that much to do). Make sure you pick up the R2 Koch DVD if you haven't already done so. It looks way better than the R1 Image DVD.
