Storyline

Jane lives in London with Richard, her boyfriend. When she was five, her mother was murdered, and she recently lost a baby in a car crash. She's plagued by nightmares of a knife-wielding, blue-eyed man. Richard, a pharmaceutical salesman, thinks the cure is vitamins; Jane's sister Barbara, who works for a psychiatrist, recommends analysis; a neighbor Jane's just met promises that if Jane participates in a Black Mass, all her fears will disappear. Jane tries the Mass, but it seems to bring her nightmares to life. Is there any way out for her short of death or a living Hell? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not too shabby!

I wasn't expecting a whole whole lot going into the film, and I got a lot from "All The Colors of the Dark." I'm a big Argento fan and I think his giallos are the most entertaining, but this film is right up there with his stuff. It has a lot of good twists and turns, it throws you for lots of loops. In the end, I felt like my head was going to explode, but I liked it.

Nice imagery and a great story surround this film. It also delves into black magic and the occult which gives the movie a darker feel than some typical 'slash-em-up' giallos.

The only thing didn't like about this one was the inconsistencies. It is billed as a 'psychedelic horror film' and it goes a little too far into the 'not making sense horror film' direction. But, that's OK, it has a decent amount of blood and a great setting in London and that makes up for it.

7 out of 10, kids.
