When her mother (Elizabeth Turner) commits suicide, little Virginia (Fausta Avelli) has a clear vision of it, even though she is hundreds of miles away ...

18 years later: Virginia (now played by Jennifer O'Neill) still has supernatural visions, & even though most of them prove wrong before long, she catches the interest of parapsychologist Luca (Marc Porel). Her loatest vision though is especially vivid, that of a woman being walled in. What's especially unsettling though is that she saw the woman being walled in in her husband Francesco's (Gianni Garko) villa, which she sees for the first time only after her vision ... immediately she tears down the wall she saw the woman being walled in, & really, she finds a corpse there ... that of a woman about 25. & since the woman turns out to be Francesco's former lover (before he met Virginia) & was walled in in his house, he is arrested upon suspicion.

But Virginia is convinced that her husband is innocent, so, withthe help of Luca, she tries everything to prove his innocence ... & then there's something else, some things about her vision do not seem quite right, since the vision involved a woman in her fifties murdered (the victim was only 25) a magazine that hadn't been published back then, & one of the prime suspects, Rospini (Gabriele Ferzetti), who has a mustache in her vision but had a beard back then ... so maybe Virginia's vision was a premonition ?

Still, eventually, Virginia & Luca dig up evidence that the murder victim was still alive after her husband has already left the country for several years in America ... & that should be it.

... but then a mystery caller, an old woman (Veronica Michielini), calls & promises to tell Virginia the truth. however, when Virginia arrives at her place, the woman is not only already murdered, she also turns out to be the dead woman of her vision, & before long, Rospini (with a mustache) is after her, just like in her vision. However, when he chases her through an abandonec church, he falls down some scaffolding & ends up seriously wounded.

Virginia heads home to her husband, who has since been released from prison ... but meanwhile, Luca finds out that the evidence they usedto free Francesco, a photograph, doesn't prove anything at all, & furthermore, in the hospital he was brought to, Rospini comes clean, that years ago he, Francesco, the old woman & the murdered girl, were involved in robbing an art gallery, but eventually the thing got out of hand & Francesco murdered the girl.

Back at Francesco's home, he knocks out Virginia, then walls her up, just like in her vision. & when finally Luca shows up to rescue her, it seems already too late since by now Virginia is neatly hidden away behind a wall ... until the alarm of her wristwatch goes off, playing a melody just like in her vision ...

 


Flix.com

Generally speaking, gialli (a specifically Italian mix of the murder mystery & the serial killer film) were never high on the credibility scale, & this one is no exception, with all its characters chasing after visions when there's a very real murder at hands ... but if you can accept that, Seven Notes in Black is a pretty fine mystery that's both stylish & suspenseful, & despite the occasional suspension of credibility it features a coherent, straightforward storyline without being blunt or superficial. & the violence is rather subtle, a far cry from director Fulci's later gorefests.

 

Interestingly, this film was remade in India in 1991 as 100 Days by Partho Ghosh starring Madhuri Dixit and Jackie Schroff.
