All the Colors of the Dark (1972)
Directed by Sergio Martino
Martino might not be a (haunted) household name like Argento or Bava, but he deserves to be. In All the Colors of the Dark, Martino brings his virtuoso command of style to every scene—whether it’s murders, nightmares, or a couple having breakfast. Giallo starlet Edwige Fenech plays a woman suffering from bizarre dreams after a traumatic car accident. As characters from her dream world start appearing in real life, things get even stranger. Martino’s CinemaScope frames are impeccably designed, and he gets more use from a single piece of dolly track in some scenes than most directors do in their entire careers.
