Assassino senza volto (Killer Without a Face)
The only copy of Assassino Senza volto I've managed to find is a low quality avi without subs, so I can't really tell you too much about the plot of the film. What I can tell you is that it's set in the Balsorano Castle (Check out this interesting post about the castle on the euro fever if you want to find out more). Considering the gothic castle setting and the fact that it's shot in black and white makes it feel slightly dated. Especially when you consider that a visual tour de force like Blood and Black Lace was shot a four years prior to this. The poster art by Studio Paradiso has got a pulpy kind of feel to it, but the film itself certainly feels more like a gothic horror than a 1968 giallo.
