Review: "The Case Of The Scorpion's Tale" (1971) Starring George Hilton; Blu-ray Special Edition

Marking Martino’s second giallo, The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail (o.t. La coda della scorpione), was released in 1971, sandwiched between a couple of his most highly regarded titles, The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh and All the Colours of the Dark.
