Audience Reviews for The Short Night of the Glass Dolls

  • Feb 13, 2014
    A disappointing giallo. The premise is relatively strong - an American journalist in Prague is discovered in a cataleptic stupor, mistaken for dead and delivered to the morgue; will he snap out of it before his own autopsy? - but the flashback story binding the thing together, some random guff about a missing girlfriend and a group of Satanists, is thoroughly dreary and too short on incident. Distinguished only by the presence of Ingrid Thulin and a below-par Morricone score, the best I can say of <i>Short Night of Glass Dolls</i> is that, like many another giallo (<i>The Perfume of the Lady in Black</i>, <i>The House with Laughing Windows</i>, etc), at least it has the courage of its own grisly convictions; the ending is almost worth waiting for.

    An American journalist recalls investigating the disappearance of his Czech girlfriend---as he lies on a mortuary slab, either dead or in a deep catatonic state. Extremely slow-moving and not worth the eventual black magic payoff. The title has nothing to do with anything.

    this a fucking strange one. i watched this mostly because of the morricone score, which is actually a lot more understated/underused than usual. a compelling story and interesting scenery are more than enough to overcome some of the hammy acting. wish they would have done more with the ending.
