...with embalming fluid! 1965's "The Embalmer" (aka "Il Monstro di Venezia") is another Italian horror film which utilizes a sex-maniacal killer who preys on beautiful young women. Edgar Allan Poe believed there was nothing more beautiful than a dead, beautiful woman. The fiend in our film obviously agrees. With a jazzy musical score and a tip of the hat to the beatnik culture, today's film plays out like a Poe tale.
