So claustrophobic, it feels like being walled up alive...
21 April 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

What a great film! I wasn't expecting it to be so good after reading all the bashing towards it, and it's probably his best film alongside The Beyond IMHO. It's not your typical Fulci film, though. It has hardly any gore (so if you liked Zombie or New York Ripper it's quite probable you won't like this one), yet Fulci manages to convey fear and suspense throughout, with a suffocating sense of dread that grows throughout out the film. The script is solid, and lacks the dreamlike feel of his other films, but it's that's obviously not the main thing here. The acting is nothing special, but that is to be expected. The music score is just amazing, and helps set up the creepy atmosphere. The middle part of the film drags on a bit, but the final payoff is brilliant and very Spoorloos-esquire. Overall, a fine giallo from Fulci and highly recommended, but keep in mind it's quite different from most Italian horror movies of the time.
