Game of Murder

aka Tarot; Autopsy; The Magician

Poster of Game of Murder

Tarot was the second of two gialli directed by the talented José María Forqué. It is every bit as effective as his earlier The Fox with a Velvet Tail (1971) and it too benefits from an attractive cast, polished production values, as well as a welcome attention to detail. The story seems poised to offer the usual tale of a love triangle gone awry, but it develops along unexpected lines and is all the more effective because of it.
