This 1974 giallo, The Perfume Of The Lady In Black, was directed and co-scripted by Francesco Barilli (director of Hotel Fear and co-screen writer of The Man from the Deep River) and offers up a particularly arty and dream like Euro-thriller. Mimsy Farmer stars as an industrial research scientist who becomes increasingly unhinged and subject to frightening hallucinations after becoming friendly with possible witches following the recent suicide of her mother. Worth a viewing.
Amicus Productions followed up on 1972s Tales From the Crypt with director Roy Ward Baker's 1973 horror anthology The Vault of Horror.
Vault follows the anthology structure of Tales, using stories/ideas from the namesake EC Comics as well. Milton Subotsky adapted and wrote the screenplay. Many familiar faces from British/Hammer films appear, such as Anna Massey (Peeping Tom, Frenzy), Denholm Elliott (Alfie, Trading Places) or Tom Baker (The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, Dr. Who). While still an engaging horror show, the film's overall mood is somewhat lighter than Tales, with the story concerning an uptight neatnik providing some subtle comic relief.
