Brilliant!
10 December 2001 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

I've seen this cult masterpiece under the title "The Inferno" here in Poland.This is surely one of the most atmospheric and diabolical horror films ever made.The two main ladies-Justine and Alucarda-are incredibly beautiful."Alucarda" is loaded with gore and violence and it offers some delicious sleaze(lots of nudity,sex and lesbianism).My favourite scene is when Justine rises from the coffin full of blood and bites out a nun's throat-pure brilliance on screen!It's really a shame that I haven't seen the other horror movies made by Juan Lopez Moctezuma("Mary,Mary,Bloody Mary"),but now I'm dying to see them.10 out of 10-an absolute masterpiece of sleazy horror!
