EMBALMER, THE (aka Mostro di Venezia, Il) (1965)
This nearly incomprehensible Italian horror flick is dead serious about it’s scuba-gear-wearing “monster” who kidnaps beautiful women, kills them, embalms them and keeps them in a collection. There are a few creepy images but mostly this is good for solid laughs. Someone raided the public domain library for the wildly inconsistent score that is so ill-suited to the images, you may forget it’s NOT a put-on. There are even moments when it sounds like there may be two separate scores playing at once! Fun.
