Better than I expected!
23 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Mosquito the Rapist" aka "Bloodlust" is a disturbing necrophilia-shocker about a deaf and dumb who suffers from a childhood-trauma and his hostile surroundings. After a while insanity takes control over his mind and he starts to break into a sanatorium and to rape dead bodies. As his secret love dies because of an accident the young guy becomes a sadistic murderer... I was seeking for trash, but what I found was a truly underrated gem of European horror cinema! Maybe the organ-score can be quite pesky after a while and the ending is too simple, but who really cares if the rest of the film is stunning at all?!? The most fascinating thing about "Mosquito" is probably his symbolic language like the childhood-trauma or the dream-sequences, which include some quite bizarre and surreal impressions to this film. German actor Werner Pocharth, who has got some really worse trash-movies in his filmography, is nearly excellent in the role of the sick and bloodsucking madman! So give this film a fair chance and don´t matter about some unconscious humor and little camp here and there! A truly good movie!!
