Super-thief Danger Diabolik is a mysterious man, thin and dressed in black, who, along with his female counterpart Eva, manages to outsmart, outrun and outdrive every Euro bad guy he encounters. Money and jewels are his game, and he’ll kill to get them.
Mario Bava’s film adaptation of the popular Diabolik Italian comic books is a stunning visual experience that epitomizes the swinging style of the late 1960s. Bava’s scenic design and cinematography are at his innovative best here, particularly in our hero’s underground psychedelic crystal lair where he and Eva make magic happen… on a big ol’ pile of cash!
