Gloomy thriller.
4 December 2014 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Very troubled Inspector Giacomo Amaldi tries to find an elusive killer who enjoys chopping parts of his victims and replacing their limbs with a similar part from a Victorian doll.He investigates triple homicide with his partner.It seems that the killer may be taxidermist.Someone is stalking an attractive anthropology student Lucia Jimenez.It's up to Giacomo to protect her too.Very stylish,gloomy and bloody thriller made by Eros Puglielli.The script by Dario Argento regular Franco Ferrini is obviously influenced by David Fincher's "Se7en",but "Eyes of the Crystal" has a stylish look of giallo.The film is fast-paced and incredibly tense.The cinematography is splendid and there are some gruesome murder scenes.The climax is slightly disappointing,though.8 body parts out of 10.
