Pretty strange.
18 October 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Cataclysm"(1980)is one of the strangest and most disjointed horror movies ever made.The film offers plenty of creepy atmosphere,but overall story is very confusing.The acting is pretty bad,but it's nice to see a horror veteran Cameron Mitchell as a detective.There is also a little bit of gore,but not too much.So if you're a fan of bizarre Satanic horror movies give this one a look.Recommended.My rating:7 out of 10.
