Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (Italian: Sette orchidee macchiate di rosso) is a 1972 Italian giallo film directed by Umberto Lenzi, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Lenzi said in interviews that this film was his favorite giallo, next to Orgasmo (1969). This film was also released in Germany as Puzzle of the Silver Half-Moons, and in France as Farewell, Killer. The script of the film is loosely based on two novels (one by Edgar Wallace and one by Cornell Woolrich), and it was the last film based on Wallace's works until a series of TV-movies produced in Germany in the mid-1990s. The German version of the film had a different opening credits sequence that emphasized its Edgar Wallace origins. The film's Riz Ortolani theme song "Why?" was recycled from the soundtrack of Lenzi's earlier film, So Sweet... So Perverse.

A serial killer is on the loose, murdering women randomly. While travelling on a train on his honeymoon, Mario (Antonio Sabato) sees his wife murdered aboard the train and after the killer gets away, the police accuse Mario of killing his newlywed wife. Mario sets out to prove his innocence by attempting to solve the "Puzzle of the Silver Half Moons". The film contains some very violent murders, some shown from the point of view of the knife-wielding, black-gloved killer, as he stabs a woman in her bed, bashes in the head of a prostitute, strangles a female artist with a telephone cord, drowns a mental patient in her bathtub and even uses a power drill on one unfortunate victim. Mario must catch the real killer in order to prove his own innocence.
