One of the best Lucio Fulci films ... (Maybe his best giallo!), 21 June 2009
Author: Criss Cross from Colombia

Virginia is a girl who, since child, has an strange power to see the past, the present or the future. Driving through a subway, she finds ans strange vision of a murder. In the visions, she thinks to see a very recognizable room. It is one of the rooms of her husband's old houses. She goes there and find a skeleton behind the wall. Now she must re-think all her vision to find out the mystery.

Maybe is not a thing of surprise only of style. We know how is going to end all, is a revision of OEDIPUS REX and is a successful bet that Fulci and writer Sacchetti do here: You cant's fool destiny. Thoug you must go until the end to find out if is true or false. And you just don't believe it! This is one of the most beautiful films of Lucio Fulci. Along with his masterpiece THE BEYOND, this films got it all - O.K there is no gore for those "fans" of Fulci who love him only for that, but there's style and in great form. Jennifer O'Neil was probably selected after seeing Visconti's THE INNOCENT.

Don't loose by any chance this movie. A great giallo. The Severin copy, even if not have the original Italian soundtrack, is the best print to find in remastered forms.

Very recommended!
