Builds well but fizzles out a bit at the end
14 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a great Giallo-style thriller. Not Giallo in the respect of a leather gloved mystery killer but because it has all that Italian style, music and suspense of the Giallo genre and era.

The creepiness and mystery builds throughout the film but I didn't find it was properly realised at the end.

A bit like getting your hat, joke and novelty but no >SNAP!<.

Oh yeah -and for a film full of attractive women, there's precious little nudity. The protagonist's Mum's a sort. Even his Nan ain't bad!

Most of the film is shot in an amazing big mansion of a house adorned with whopping great big modern artworks and sculptures.

The acting is convincing from adults and children alike although one poor child actress has the part of an incessantly munching chub.

Still, worth a look. Could be worse.
