If Freud would write Gialli screenplays ...
25 December 2008 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

I can't but concur wholeheartedly with pretty much everything that my fellow reviewer Lazarillo already wrote in his user-comment. "Eye in the Labyrinth" is an Italian Giallo that literally thrives on Freudian psycho-sexual gibberish, and if you don't "believe" in Sigmund Freud's analytical theories, chances are that you won't enjoy this movie for one bit. Personally I'm not a big supporter of psychology, but I do fancy everything which concerns early 70's and obscure Italian cult cinema so I still could at least moderately enjoy this film. The plot introduces Julie, an emotionally troubled young girl who starts her own private investigation in search for her psychiatrist that went missing. The trail leads to a fancy resort where her beloved doctor threw perverted sex parties and ran a whole lot of other illegal affairs. Julie gradually becomes entangled in a web of mystery, hallucinations and dead end clues, but still there's no trace of Louis the psychiatrist. As the plot of "Eye in the Labyrinth" slowly unfolds, the film raises confusion instead of to clarifying the events and it actually requires an extended monologue at the end in order to tie all the loose ends together. The denouement is fairly logical and acceptable, but it's definitely a whole lot of senseless nonsense and – as said – you need to switch on your Freudian mindset. "Eye in the Labyrinth" contains relatively few violence or imaginative murder sequences (with the notable exception of one fantastic burning-car moment) in comparison with most Italian Gialli of that period, but there's plentiful of sleaze and nudity to compensate. For example, a still very young Sybil Danning makes an appearance as one of the random topless murder victims and her presence alone forms a nice extra treat for avid cult purchasers.
