Very enjoyable giallo
19 July 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The recently married and clairvoyant Virginia Ducci (Jennifer O'Neil) decides to surprise her new husband by renovating his country home, a home she has never been in. On the way she has visions of a dead woman hidden behind a wall, another woman dead with a bloodstained face and a strange red room. When she arrives at the country residence the realises that the room she is in is the one from her vision and sets about breaking down the wall, where she finds the dead body of an unknown woman. The police are very suspicious of her and her husband, he is soon pulled in and made the no 1 suspect as he had a relationship with the deceased girl. Virginia believing her husbands innocence then proceeds to investigate in amateur sleuth fashion, her visions guiding her to the shocking truth.

Brilliantly paced Giallo that slowly feeds us with the information we need to discover the truth behind the ghastly visions. The beautiful O'Neill is excellent, a pity she didn't do more films in the genre. Fulci has a reputation as one of the kings of gore but here yet again he is restrained in that department, there's very little blood or gore and positively no nudity, but this film shows yet again that he could make really good films, "Duckling", "Lizard" and One on top of the other prove that he is a legend in the history of the giallo, Great story, Great score, Great ending, Superb Film!
