aka Cosa avete fatto a Solange?
  • Country of origin: Italy, West Germany
  • Year released: 1972
  • Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
  • Director: Massimo Dallamano

  • IMDb rating: What Have You Done to Solange? (1972) on IMDb

It’s a sort of plot I associate with the American writer Cornell Woolwich, William Irish in Europe, where a bunch of people are guilty of something and they’re killed off one-by-one by a grudge holder. The mystery isn’t so much who the killer is but what the connection between the victims is and what their shared crime is, which is why the title is addressed to them rather than to the murderer.
