Giallo Essentials Blue (1970)

In the early 1970s, when the giallo boom was at its peak, producer-turned-director Luciano Ercoli helmed three standalone but thematically linked examples of the genre, each featuring a memorable star turn by Spanish born actress and model Nieves Navarro (billed under her adopted stage name of Susan Scott). Accompanied by a rogues’ gallery of familiar and recurring faces, this trilogy of terror represents the giallo at its most playful and unpredictable.

In The Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion, Minou's (Dagmar Lassander, The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire) dull but pampered life is upturned by a mysterious sadist (Simón Andreu, Death Carries a Cane) who blackmails her into submitting to his every perverted whim. Desperate to escape his clutches, Minou confides in her libidinous best friend Dominique (Navarro)... but is she more involved than she’s letting on? Then, in Death Walks on High Heels, Navarro stars as exotic dancer Nicole, daughter of a murdered jewel thief, who finds herself terrorized by a black-clad assailant determined to procure her father’s stolen gems. Fleeing Paris and her knife-wielding pursuer, Nicole arrives in London, only to discover that death stalks her at every corner. Finally, in Death Walks at Midnight, Navarro stars as Valentina - a model who, in the midst of a drug-fueled photoshoot, witnesses a brutal murder in the apartment opposite hers. But when the authorities refuse to believe a crime has been committed, Valentina is forced to assume the role of amateur sleuth.

With glamor, perversity and narrative twists and turns aplenty, each of these giallo delights is fully restored from original elements and presented alongside an array of all-encompassing bonus features.
