I had not seen this film and could find only a little information about it, but, as is often the case with obscure European horror films, my curiosity ultimately led and compelled me to purchase this DVD. Often times this sort of gamble, though relatively small, often results in big disappointments. However, it is those rare occasions when such a film either meets, or in some instances, exceeds one's expectations, that the myriad gambles and innumerable letdowns seem to disappear and it all seems worth it- What Have You Done to Solange? is this kind of film.
To keep it short, it is a nicely photographed, well constructed film, with good performances that are only slightly marred by dubbed dialogue. The murder sequences are effective without fetishizing (too much) the gruesome details and revelling in grotesquerie, as do many films from the Italian horror scene. As for the DVD itself, the image quality is good, all things considered, and although there is little in the way of extras (apart from some trailers)there is a slick collector's booklet included. While by no means a flawless film, What Have You Done to Solange? does rank up there with other top notch giallo/horror films like Mario Bava's "Blood and Black Lace" and Dario Argento's "Deep Red." That being said, Solange is also a singular effort which should please both fans of this genre of film, and those who are merely curious. Check it out!
