· Eyes of the Chameleon (2005) (Troma Entertainment)
The Short Version: Not an actual giallo, but an incredible simulation.
The Slightly-Elongated Version: Damn fortune tellers; just when you decide to make something of your life and seek out their advice, they curse you. Or, at least, that’s what happens to Sara (Ann Teal, who also wrote and produced this indie horror flick), a bartender in Las Vegas whose life isn’t all she had hoped it would be. After a trip to a fortune teller, however, things go from bad to worse: her friends start getting knocked off by an unknown assailant, while Sara herself gets involved in a venerable mess of decadence. Who’s behind the killings? What’s the purpose of said murders? And is there actually a reason for that title? Aw, who cares? Enjoy the debauchery!
Happy viewing, kids — and be sure to keep an eye out for the third "Horrible Horror" installment: “You Call This Horror?”
