Eyesore
25 January 2001 | by (Haddonfield, IL) – See all my reviews

I'm usually a sucker for these kinds of Italian giallos, but this one was really bad. You know you're in trouble when the director has to throw in a few sleazy lesbian scenes to keep things exciting, and Umberto Lenzi even goes so far as to throw in a killer in a red rain slicker, a blatant Argento ripoff. Someone deserves a sharp slap across the face for this one, that's for sure.

You may say it's all in good fun, but there's a gratuitous lack of logic, without any of the style or excitement that usually makes us overlook such things. The scenario concerns a psychotic killer offing a bunch of morons on a tour bus and gouging out their eyeballs. You'd think that after the first few murders the survivors would just cut the tour short. I mean, who really wants to see the Coliseum THAT badly? The aformentioned lesbian scenes may thrill some viewers...but then again, maybe not.

By the time you get around to the ridiculous conclusion, you start to realize that the director has engaged in his own sort of cinematic eyeball-assault, with you as the unsuspecting victim. As punishment for unleashing this boring dreck on the world, I think the director should be forced to star in the sequel, "Testicle."
