Ofcourse this is a pretty great film; great special effects with minor exceptions, great plot, bad acting with minor exceptions, etc... What I really liked was the music composed by Fabio Frizzi. First we've got this great "goblin-esque" Italian horror music (for those of you who don't know, Goblin is this band that provided music for several Italian horror films, such as Tenebre.) My favorite cue is the theme for the blind lady with the dog. It has a piano playing a very haunting melody to a set background chord. The theme reappears pretty much whenever that lady appears.
I first watched this film on VHS with the cut version and it was boring as hell. But yesterday in the new releases of Scarecrow Video in Seattle (some advertisement there) I found it released as an uncut version for region 1 DVD's. Plus, it was widescreen. I enjoyed it immensely.
