Good, not great
9 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are all kinds of tales about secret societies. Some are made up, others perhaps not. In literature and film they are mostly portrayed as evil and up to no good. One of the greatest examples is the 1973 classic 'The Wicker Man.' They're usually on the lookout for some poor fool to fall into their trap. Made near the end of the Italian Horror boom of the 80s, 'The Spider Labyrinth' owes a bit to the British cult favorite. Though not a classic like Argento's 'Suspiria' or Bava's 'Black Sunday,' it's a treat worth seeking out.

Pros: Well acted. Effective score. Suspenseful story. Good job on the effects. Director Gianfranco Giani does well at creating atmosphere. Moves at a nice pace. Several eerie, sometimes out there sequences.

Cons: Flimsy plot. Dated stop motion effects. Too short to develop the characters and story enough. Effective, but predictable end.

Final thoughts: For some reason this has yet to be released on DVD in the US. It's certainly worthy of one, even if it isn't a masterpiece. It has enough chills and twists to keep one interested. Those with arachnophobia beware.

My rating: 3.5/5
