No One Heard the Scream
Directed by Eloy de la Iglesia
One year after his international breakthrough with CANNIBAL MAN, defiant Basque filmmaker Eloy de la Iglesia co-wrote and directed this twisted thriller that instantly made him “the father of Spanish giallo” (Spanish Fear): When a woman spies her neighbor disposing of his wife’s corpse, she will cross the line from witness to accomplice to something far more depraved.

I like Iglesia's filmmaking. He's got style. This a fun, twisty tale that's worth a watch for fans of 70s Eurohorrors and giallos.
It is a fun little oddity that I found more engaging than I expected. Agree with the previous reviewer about the music; worth it for that and the beautiful shots alone, but it had a bit of character and a decent twist at the end. If you're into giallo and you've seen a lot of them already, this is worth a spin!
Some honestly quirky turns in this psychedelic period piece. A bit slow and self-indulgent at times, but some great shots and the fantastic soundtrack make for a good time if you are into work from the era. More like a 3.5-skull, but I'll round up, as it is fun to put on in the background for the music alone.
