DEATH WALKS TWICE for Arrow Video USA (review)

Susan Scott (SO SWEET SO DEAD) and Simon Andreu (NIGHT OF THE SORCERERS) headline this pair of giallo films by Luciano Ercoli (KILLER COP) scripted by Ernesto Gastaldi (THE WHIP AND THE BODY).  In DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS, cabaret artist Nicole flees Paris in the arms of a British doctor (ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST's Frank Wolff) from a masked assassin after a cache of stolen diamonds but finds more mystery on the chilly English seaside.  In DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT, photo model Valentina undergoes an experiment with a hallucinogenic drug for a magazine article.  Under the influence, she witnesses a brutal murder in the apartment across from hers only to learn that it happened six months before.  Her boyfriend, a reporter, and the police do not believe her, but the killer does and he is stalking her through Milan as she tries to solve the mystery herself.
