"You dirty paraplegic!"
10 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a clash of contrasts, this beautiful looking film has a beautiful looking actress in it, but still comes across as just a cheap exploitation film. Mariangela Giodrani (of Burial Ground fame) stars here as nun Sol, caught up with a truly horrible family living in a mansion in isolation. Matriach Maria has just died, and the family have gathered together to see her off. You've got Maria's husband Aldo Sambrell (Flesh for the Beast), his crippled brother (another actor from Burial Ground), Aldo's daughter Miria, the butler, and a doctor. Very shortly the film dives head first into murder, nudity, possession, nudity and nudity.

Soon enough, while Aldo's shooting up his brother's morphine, his brother is peeping in on Sol while she's sleeping, imagining her doing a bit of invisible banjo playing. This scene goes on forever (although I'm still deciding if that's a good or bad thing here). The butler is trying to do some ritual to clear the house of the curse (another scene that goes on forever) while Miria wanders around the crypt as her dead mother's voice commands her to kill people. Aldo starts going crazy and accusing everyone of having an affair with his dead wife (which might be true, as it turns out).

This film might be sleazy (although there's very little sex), but the horror elements are sadly lacking. There's a few kills and the only scene that was any good was when Aldo was taking his brother to the basement to kill him. I suppose the bit where the corpse got up and strangle the guy was alright too. However, there is wall to wall nudity if that's your thing, as every female cast member (and some of the males) get their kit off, and I'm not complaining about Mariangela Giodrani – those big hazel eyes do seem to carry a certain charm.

All said, I could have done with a bit more story and horror, but you might get your kicks out of this one. It was okay.
