  1. João R's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Unbalanced - the beginning and the ending were its strongest moments.

  2. Alessandro Molina's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Since many have compared it to Dario Argento: ain't the same ballpark, ain't the same league, ain't even the same fuckin' sport.

  4. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    An enigmatic, stylish, terrifying and catatonic atmosphere in the beautifully dark and inspiring Prague. Easily inspired by Goth novels from Poe, notably in the case of of Mr Waldemar. The opressive ambience is really efficient. Despite the film’s plot suffers of a real lack of consistency according to me this represents Aldo Lado in one of his best.

  7. bitchwitched's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    The last ten minutes were better than the first half of the film

  8. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Long live Ingrid Thulin! Hardly a giallo; it's a mystery of madness!

  10. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Interesting first directorial effort of director Aldo Lado. Lado knows for sure how to create scenes that can stay in the viewer's memory. Too bad that the last part of 'Short Night of Glass Dolls' is too muddled ! Recommended, though.

  11. Pymo's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

  12. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Un film bellissimo, con una grande idea e una narrazione che procede spedita senza mai far calare la tensione. La parte finale è geniale, con tinte politiche molto forti e -purtroppo- attualissime (parliamo di un film di quarant'anni fa e niente è cambiato), che si risolvono in una chiusura agghiacciante.

  13. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    Very entertaining giallo mystery from director Aldo Lado employees a unique flashback structure that cleverly keeps the plot spinning toward its shocking climax. Plenty of suspense style and a strong cast that includes the scene-stealing Ingrid Thulin, a must for giallo fans. Very possibly a major influence on Kubrick's 'Eyes Wide Shut'.

  14. Silenzio's rating of the film Short Night of Glass Dolls

    One of the more atmospheric and original gialli of the 70s despite stealing a bit from Rosmarys baby. Prague is an ideal city for the genre. Shame that some of the cast is a bit wasted. Adorf is badly dubbed and does not really have enough to do while legendary Bergman actress thulin adds acting chops to the film but sorel is given most of the screen time. The ending makes you forgive them film for the slower moments
