Did You Know?

This film was originally intended for Italian television and shot in spherical widescreen for subsequent sales to foreign theatrical markets. It was then ruled to be too gory even for Italian TV viewing and released instead to cinemas and video.See more »

Fulci Does the Twilight Zone, 15 January 2001
Author: yellowrobe from Seattle

going into this film i didnt expect a whole lot. made for tv movies here in the u.s. usually arent too impressive. the same may not be said for italy apparently. of all of lucio fulci's films i've seen, this one had the tightest plot ..... well... maybe just slightly less than 'the psychic'. there are no points of the movie that drag either. those with limited attention spans will not be searching for the fast forward button. the gore is more plentiful than you'd expect too. never excessive and never lacking. the acting is surprisingly well done too. it might take some poking around but try and dig this one up. it shouldnt let you down.
