More voyeurism than horror in this one., 11 January 2006
Author: Boba_Fett1138 from Groningen, The Netherlands

It's Italian, it's horror...but it's not very good. The movie is cheap looking and the story is just terrible. For an horror movie it certainly isn't original and the movie is severely lacking on multiple levels.

Perhaps the biggest problem with the movie is that it doesn't have a real main characters. Who exactly was supposed the hero in this one? And who exactly were the good and bad guys? It makes the movie confusing and messy to watch. It also is terribly boring all, since rarely ever something interesting happens.

The movie is filled with nudity and voyeurism. The movie is basically about the servants peeping on naked women and the movie doesn't focuses enough on the horror aspects of the movie.

The musical score by Marcello Gigante is just plain awful and truly laughable at times.

Both the editing and cinematography are also severely lacking. The movie is incredibly simple and cheap made and its horrible put together with the editing. The cinematography looks very amateur like and it seemed that they didn't used proper lighting or a focus-puller.

This Italian take on the Frankenstein franchise, in which for some odd reason also Neanderthalers are involved, is a terrible one, in which basically nothing interesting ever happens.

2/10
