A 60’S PSYCHEDELIC SNAPSHOT FROM HORROR MAESTRO MARIO BAVA!
The suave, psychedelic-era thief called Diabolik (John Phillip Law) can’t get enough of life’s good – or glittery – things. Not when there are currency shipments to steal from under the noses of snooty government officials and priceless jewels to lift from the boudoirs of the super rich. The elusive scoundrel finds plenty of ways to live up to his name in this tongue-in-cheek, live-action caper inspired by Europe’s popular Diabolic comics. He clambers up walls, zaps a press conference with Exhilaration Gas, smacks a confession out of a crime lord while free-falling with him from an airplane, and pulls off the heist of a twenty-ton gold ingot.
