Wonderfully odd horror masterpiece.
15 April 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Tragica Ceremonia En Villa Alexander" is a wonderfully creepy ghost story made by Riccardo Freda.Freda is the best known for his early Gothic horror movies like "I Vampiri" and "The Horrible Dr.Hitchcock".The film is well shot,with some gloomy atmospheric imagery and outrageously gory set-pieces.The acting is pretty good with Camille Keaton("I Spit on Your Grave")in the lead role.The soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani is truly beautiful and haunting.The gore effects are pretty nasty and shocking,and the climax is truly eerie.The film is extremely rare and hard to find,so get the copy as soon as possible.The plot is as follows:a group of friends run out of gas in the middle of nowhere during the thunderstorm and find refuge in a villa.Little do they know that the owner is about to have a black mass in the basement!Soon the orgy of blood-soaked violence begins!
