Wonderful and totally overlooked Italian giallo.
15 July 2008 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Pensione Paura" is a brilliant and a little bit surreal giallo from director Francesco Barilli,whose "Perfume of the Lady in Black" was one of the genre's most haunting and original films.The film takes place in 1945 somewhere near a lake.Some guests are staying in the "Pension of the Sirene" led by Marta with the help of her daughter Rose.The girl knows that the mother has a lover hidden away in the attic.She waits for the return of her soldier father and cultivates a simple friendship with the guide,the grandson of the parish priest.In the pension stays also a violent criminal named Rodolfo who lays a trap on Rose.One day Marta is murdered and the girl is assaulted and raped by Rodolfo and his companion.Both are dispatched by a mysterious black-gloved killer..."Pensione Paura" is a stylish and overlooked giallo.There is enough violence and wonderful visuals to satisfy fans of Italian cult cinema.The film is finally available on Italian DVD without English subs.
