Il Giustiziere sfida la polizia (A Dragonfly for each corpse)
I’ve always thought that A Dragonfly for each Corpse is a fantastic title, but the film is a very average genre entry. Like a lot of Naschy’s work, this leaves me fairly cold. I tend to find him quite wooden but he’s ok here and at least Erika Blanc is on hand to provide some well-needed glamour (and nudity) to the proceedings. The murder scenes are quite good, especially the first murder, but there’s an unintentionally hilarious scene where a suspect is trying to escape the police on a roller coaster. Giallo completist will want to seek this out but those with a fleeting interest in the genre are advised to pass on this one. Poster art by Aller.
