Conclusion: All The Colours Of The Dark (1972) Film Review
I’ll be honest All The Colours Of The Dark didn’t really do much for me. It’s an interesting film in some ways and a pretty average to poor one in others. I’d say the story is kind of weak. If you are interested in director Sergio Martino’s work then it’s a must see but as a film in its own right maybe not so much.

Conclusion: All The Colours Of The Dark Blu-ray Review
Overall the picture quality is very good and I have no real issues to report. Included with the extras are an interview with director Sergio Martino and a short by Michele De Angelis. Overall a pretty decent set of extras in my opinion although be aware the interview with Martino is in Italian and therefore has subtitles.
