Shadow of Death
Gert Muller, a dangerous figure from Denise’s past life, turns up out of the blue. He is on his uppers and needs cash fast. He discovers what is going on with Denise and Peter and decides to blackmail them. However, his scheme goes seriously wrong when the cheating lovers forge a plan to use Gert himself to achieve their goal. They embark on a devious scheme to drive John insane and fit him up for Gert’s murder.
A splendidly devious Spanish “giallo”, SHADOW OF DEATH has a real mind-melter of a plot, with numerous twists and turns. It’s a film that needs multiple viewings before it reveals all its secrets. The cast are uniformly excellent, with Teresa Gimpera playing the icy femme fatale to perfection.
