Lacks any mystery but still decent
Formula for a Murder completely lacks the mystery of an unknown killer, a key element of so many Italian movies known as Giallo. These combine horror with a series of murders, often involving a police investigation. The British DVD covers gives away the killers identity, and it is not long into the film before that is confirmed.
However, there is plenty of shock and style, though it is not on par with the classics in this sub genre. David Warbeck gives a satisfying performance, though I fear he was dubbed.Some great kills (thankfully the British release is uncut), a little bit of sex and a decent, if somewhat predictable finale.
