Five Dolls for an August Moon

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.

A vacation becomes a nightmare when a killer starts stalking a group of friends.

Cast: William Berger, Ira Furstenburg, Edwige Fenech

The only good part was the bodies piling up

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.
