This work o Michele Soavi looks like stilistic exercise - plot is pretty weak but camera work is simply AMAZING! Movie contains one of the best steadycam and crane shots I've ever seen! But poor story definitely does not improve entire impression...
Anyway, mood, atmosphere and stunning camera work are really remarkable and worth seeing and that keeps movie from falling down.
Still, Dellamorte Dellamore is the best Soavi's movie I've seen although camera work here is much better.
