An average Italian horror film.
1 July 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film,especially after watching the beginning,which was creepy enough to keep me on the edge of my seat.Unfortunately "The Ogre" becomes quickly boring and unintentionally funny at times.There's absolutely no gore and the underwater sequence near the climax totally rips-off similar(and much better executed)scene in Dario Argento's brilliant "Inferno"(1980).The main actress is really annoying,but overall I liked the Gothic feeling of this film.The setting(an old Italian castle)is a nice touch.5 out of 10.
