This truly exemplary vomit of unbound euro-weirdness is rendered in living, lurid colour by fiendishly tasteless director Manuel Cano who's knack for nut-ball visuals is given ample room in his grimy opus 'The Swamp of The Ravens'. While there are many references to Edgar Allan Poe the film owes a huge debt to H.P Lovecraft's immortal short story 'Re- Animator'. (There are also a few similarities to Stuart Gordon's landmark film; especially in the way the 're-brained' awaken in such a full-voiced fashion!) Much like Lovecraft's grimpen tale, the disgraced medic continues his debased experiments with circumventing the finality of brain death, and perfecting his troublesome elixir death, in a suitably Gothic locale; a moldering, cadaver-infested swamp seemingly overrun with these truly gross-looking Raven / vulture hybrids constantly shrieking as if at the brink of death themselves. The morbid and suitably weird psychedelic pan-pipe soundtrack by Joaquin Torres doing much to increase the already monumental levels of brain-tweaking oddness! (There is this one wildly incongruous montage featuring a series of especially malefic-looking stillborn babies in jaundiced pickle jars which is in delightfully bad taste!) 'The Swamp of The Ravens' is delirious, psychotronic madness that should appease the gibbering necrophile that lurks deep inside all of our murky synaptic folds!
