Five Dolls for an August Moon
Directed by Mario Bava
A vacation becomes a nightmare when a killer starts stalking a group of friends in Mario Bava's rarely seen take on the classic TEN LITTLE INDIANS-style whodunit. A space age island retreat is visited by a group of friends and business associates, one of whom is a scientist who has invented a revolutionary chemical process, and is fending off various offers to buy it. Soon the vacationers start dying, and the survivors begin to wonder who has the most to gain from these murders most foul. You'll think twice before booking your next vacation after watching.

Edwige makes anything worthwhile
Basically a variation on And Then There Were None. Not one of Bava's best but enjoyable nonetheless, particularly for the Swingin' 60s decor and lounge-music soundtrack.
Darn near entertaining, but not quite successful. For me, the disgraceful English-language dub is too miserable to allow for much pleasure. Moreover, none of the characters would be especially likeable, so it's not even trying to locate the original Italian version.
I really enjoy this film and I think it has a lot to offer that people are missing
I have fun watching corny films sometimes but this wasn't scary at all. If you are in the mood to watch a goofy old film then go for it. That's all it's worth.
