L'Assassino...è al telefono (The Killer is on the Phone)

De Martino was never one of the more exciting Italian directors and L'Assassino...è al telefono is another rather poor and lacklustre effort by him. The premise of the film isn’t fantastic, but might have worked in the hands of a better director. Anne Haywood is no Edwige Fenech and makes for a rather uninteresting damsel in distress. Savalas walks through all of his scenes and none of the menace that he managed to convey in Lisa & the Devil is present here.

Wow! I love that poster. I've never seen that one before, but now I have to find one of my own. As odd as it may seem, I collect Telly Savalas memorabilia and this would be a perfect addition. That being said, the film is rather dull and it seems Telly was less than enthused to be in it.
