Hatchet for the Honeymoon, originally entitled Il Rosso Segno Della Follia in Italian, is a darkly comedic crime thriller directed by renowned Italian horror director Mario Bava and written by Santiago Moncada. John Harrington (Stephen Forsyth) is a fashion designer who runs a bridal salon with his wife Mildred (Laura Betti), but this mild-mannered shop-owner harbors a deadly secret. He is a serial killer who is driven by a childhood trauma to murder his female customers on their honeymoons. When his wife discovers his hidden side, he murders her too, only to find himself haunted by her vengeful ghost and pursued by relentless inspector Russell (Jesus Puente), who is alerted by Harrington's increasingly erratic behavior. Released in 1974 and produced by Manuel Cano Sanciriaco, this intelligent and visually compelling thriller is one of the underrated classics of Italian Horror Cinema. Hatchet for the Honeymoon, though lacking graphic violence, may not be suitable for younger viewers.
