“Buenos Aires, 1985. It’s the first anniversary of the death of stunning supermodel diva Alexis Carpenter (Camila Pizzo) – who met a fantastically fiery demise whilst strutting her stuff on the runway. To mark the anniversary, fashion editor of Attila magazine Lucia L’uccello (Silvia Montanari) – who gives The Devil Wears Prada savage Miranda Priestly a run for her money – plans a tribute to the fallen model. However, when Alexis’ dresses are stolen, and staff start to disappear, it seems a mysterious mannequin killer in a black raincoat is out for blood and ready for their closeup.“
I never knew the term “giallo” before watching Crystal Eyes, but now I know that giallo is the Italian term for mystery fiction.
Absolutely loved the 80s feel this horror had. One of my favorite decades for horrors and this one was spot on! The music, the cinematography, the quick flashes of a knife and blood splatter. It was fantastic. In fact, I definitely kept forgetting this was made in 2017…
The plot however, wasn’t my favorite. I think with a better plot, this would’ve been an excellent horror. Regardless, its worth a watch, especially if you’re an 80s horror fan!
