SEVEN DEATHS IN THE CATS EYES (1973)
This is probably the only giallo I've seen where there's a crazy gorilla running around while a black-gloved killer with a razor blade is slashing people's necks at the same time and a big-assed extra-fluffy cat is playing peeping-Tom. For that it does stand out but for the most part this one is pretty generic as far as these Eurotrash killer-thrillers go. This one is not overly stylish or gory but it does have a nice-looking rotting half-a-skeleton corpse on display and Jane Birkin (who mostly knew before this as that chick who sang with Serge Gainsbourg(who also shows up here as an inspector)) does a pretty good job even if she doesn't get naked as she is known for doing from time to time. Check it out only if you run out of top-tier giallos.
