  1. giovanni's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    Film nul et détestable d'un ancien grand réalisateur du fantastique. Ne reste que la séquence des cadavres empaquetés dans une chambre froide, et encore... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    An interesting and obscure giallo, which has all the blueprint marks of Bava's later work "Bay of Blood". Screenplay feels like a quickie, so does the whole film, and it doesn't really make any sense, does it? Well, it keeps the lounge mood at play at least with costumes, decor and music. It's Edwige Fenech's first giallo too, so you just might tick this box for her if above mentioned don't work.

  4. Mister No's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    Bava's take on Agatha Christie's 'Ten Little Indians' is the one thing a thriller should never be....boring. Other than an interesting score for the time period the film never gets off the ground.

  6. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    Non è certo il miglior film di Bava e qui a differenza di altri lavori la scarsità del budget a disposizione esce fuori alla grande;è una rilettura abbastanza scialba della Christie,e al di là di alcune scene macabre ben riuscite(i cadaveri tipo carne da macello) il resto è troppo piatto e non decolla mai.La Fenech poi che esce dalla doccia in mutande è da denuncia.Qualche buono spunto,ma non è tanta roba.

  7. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

  8. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    A disappointment. If you're not a fan of the 70's kitsch, you won't be enthralled by this variation on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. Already forgotten.

  9. Joshua's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    Kitsch to the max! Bava goes a bit silly here with... well, everything. And the colors pop as per usual. Far less weird after you've experienced it once but it's a gallery of its own soul. That will never change. Edwige Fenech also stars, the bountiful beauty she is. The spheres and marbles tossed down the spiral stairs, mesmerizing us and leading to the discovery of another dead body is a highlight.

  10. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Five Dolls for an August Moon

    Very entertaining tongue-in-cheek murder mystery from director Mario Bava. The visuals aren't as lavish as in Bava's best work, but it delivers enough witty imagery, clever twists, and kitschy 70s excess to be great fun for fans of Bava and Italian exploitation.
