Five Dolls for an August Moon (original title 5 bambole per la luna d'agosto) is a 1970 Italian thriller film directed by Mario Bava, from a screenplay by Mario di Nardo. It concerns a group of people who have gathered on a remote island for fun and relaxation. One of the guests is a chemist who has created a revolutionary new chemical process, and several of the attending industrialists are eager to buy it from him. Business problems become a moot point, however, when someone begins killing off the attendees one-by-one.

This was one of Bava's most obscure films, and did not receive an official American release until 2001, when Image Entertainment distributed it on DVD. After the Image disc went out of print, Anchor Bay re-released as part of the Mario Bava Collection Volume 2 box set on October 23rd, 2007.
