    A delightfully outlandish comic strip directed by the master of the Italian B movie." – Tom Milne, Time Out

    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 Diabolik comics. He clambers up walls, zaps a press conference with Exhilaration Gas, smacks a confession out of a crime lord while freefalling with him from an airplane, and pulls off the heist of a twenty-ton gold ingot. Impossible? No, diabolical – Danger: Diabolik, to be exact!

    Fun film with great atmosphere and a great Jazzy score by Ennio Morricone.

    Nice. I hope this is from a new scan. I saw a screening of this a few months ago and the DCP didn't look much better than the DVD.

    I really hope Shout includes the MST3K final episode...

    Website says: "Product Note: Extras in progress and will be announced at a later date". Did like the MST3K riff on the movie.

    This is an incredibly fun movie, not to mention quite visually exciting.

    FYI, the Paramount DVD included a commentary with Tim Lucas (who does a lot of Bava tracks) and John Phillip Law, a making-of piece, the Beastie Boys music video Body Movin' (which parodies Diabolik) with optional commentary by Adam Yauch, plus trailers.

    Shout! could add to that the alternate Italian version, the UK track (which is on the MST3K episode, unlike the proper American track that's on DVD), and perhaps the MST3K episode (even though it's in the Vol. 39 DVD set).
