Run, but you'll never get away from me!, 6 March 2009
Author: lastliberal from United States

As Madhouse, this film was one of the infamous video nasties that were banned in Britain. It was released uncut in 2004.

Julia tells how she was terrorized as a girl by her sister Mary and her dog. next this, in the present day a bloodthirsty rottweiler shows up. Has her sister escaped the Madhouse again? This is a beautifully shot film. It has a real quality feel for a low-budget knockoff. Of course, there is some debate as to whether this is truly a knockoff as it came out the same years as the film it supposedly copies. Who knocked off whom? Besides the cinematography by Roberto D'Ettorre Piazzoli, it has a great score by Cannibal Holocaust's Riz Ortolani.

Slasher fans will enjoy it, and it really isn't that bad, in a bloody way. Of course, Helen (Morgan Hart) might disagree. This cute blond didn't last long, and wasn't very pretty after her attack. If she would have just ripped off her shirt, she might have escaped, and we might have seen a shot of flesh.

With Dennis Robertson as the girl's uncle and a crazy priest, and a wacky new age landlady (Edith Ivey), there were plenty of characters to keep us interested.

Julia's 25th birthday party was really going well until her boyfriend, Dr. Edwards (Michael MacRae) appeared and had to perform emergency surgery on the rottweiler with a drill. Boy, was Father James hacked at the way things turned out.
