1963 - THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, early giallo film

The Girl Who Knew Too Much is a very early giallo film shot by Mario Bava who is one of the creators of this genre.  To refresh everyone's memory, giallo films feature lots of murders, blood, suspense and a little sex. 

For one of the first giallo films this one sticks to that formula.  Murders with people getting knives in their backs and a young blonde heroine who is constantly being stalked by a killer while everyone around her are dropping like flies sprayed with insect killer.

The film is photographed by the director Mario Bava in his full gothic look.  Nothing like a nice creepy film in black and white. 

86 minutes
