Goofs

In one scene, a chopper takes off from in front of the hospital, disappearing into the Belgrade skyline. In the distance, "Palata Beograd", the then-highest tower block on the Balkans, can clearly be seen. In 1972, when the story is supposed to be taking place, the tower was still being built and far from finished. See more »

Now this is the real horror!
16 September 2008 | by (Belgrade,Serbia) – See all my reviews

Now this is the real horror!

The story,camera,acting are classics and sometimes really poor, but the atmosphere in the movie is priceless and unforgettable. Even the score is fantastic,It's rear but it's there. Rade Serbedzija is great and only one who seams to have fun. And the begging of the movie is just simply excellent. Variola Vera is an absolutely merciless horror drama, a movie so real and scary that,it keeps you nervous and jumpy rather than pleasurably excited, and it's a classic.

The one and only authentic Serbian horror movie!

I love it !
