Poster of Seven Murders for Scotland Yard

7 Murders for Scotland Yard is Paul Naschy’s first “proper” foray [into the giallo], though his earlier film Agonizando en el crimen contained elements of the genre, as well. ...Naschy would go on to write two more giallo-style thrillers: Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll and A Dragonfly for Each Corpse. ...[José Luis Madrid]’s approach to directing is extremely pedestrian and he seldom manages to create the sort of memorable set pieces which distinguish the best of Naschy’s horror films for, say, León Klimovsky or Carlos Aured. Naschy’s script is not entirely without interest, but the lack of dynamic staging and some truly uninspiring performances definitely undermine his efforts. ...7 Murders for Scotland Yard is a frustrating movie. It has the elements of a good lurid thriller, yet it never catches fire.
