The Friday Night Horror Movie: The Fox With the Velvet Tail (1971)

Once again I’m letting you know the title of the Friday Night Horror Movie before I actually watched it. With luck, I’ll actually write something about it tomorrow.

I am a very big fan of the horror subgenre called Giallo. That’s an Italian genre that was very popular in the 1970s. It usually involves a black-gloved killer who murders beautiful people with a knife or some other sharp object. They are usually very stylish with brilliant use of colors and interesting camera placement and movement.

This film is apparently better known as In the Eye of the Hurricane, but The Fox With the Velvet Tail is a much better title in my opinion (and it is much more of a Giallo title) so I’m going with that. I don’t actually know anything about the film other than it is a Giallo and I’m trying to watch everything I can within that genre. I’m about half an hour in and so far it is very stylish but also rather dull.

I will try to update you later, once I’ve finished it.
