Hurray for more Italian giallo, which is one of my favorite horror sub-genres. Watch Me When I Kill is a semi sleazy, pretty brutal, film directed by Antonio Bido that also works as an effective murder mystery. Which is of course all giallos, and that’s why they’re fun to watch. Trying to guess who the killer is while people are being horribly slaughtered is an old giallo pass time that never gets old to me.
The bathtub kill is rather nasty, as is the face into the stew murder that ends with the lady getting her throat cut. The conclusion wraps up everything quite nicely, and the film has multiple surprises that I didn’t expect. While not as good as some of the more famous or better made giallos, this is still worth a view. I saw it thanks to Shudder, which may be my favorite streaming service.
