'Fun spooky house horror, replete with Nutbag aunts and all manner of requisite Italian genre lunacy'
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Fun spooky house horror, replete with Nut-bag aunts and all manner of requisite Italian genre lunacy; produced by Lucio Fulci and directed with "relative" competency by Mario 'Burial Ground' Bianchi. The film takes a wee while to come to the boil, but when it finally does reach body temperature it rewards the more patient viewer; also includes a delightful shower scene with the buxom Jessica Moore which certainly doesn't detract from the overall entertainment value. Truth be known this is far more amusing to watch than many of the Fulci-helmed horror's from the similar era; should be of greater interest to those who simply must watch every 80's Italian schlocker. When all is said and done I personally found much to enjoy with 'Murder Secret' (1988) and the zesty electronic score certainly didn't go unnoticed! (Might be time for a Bianchi horror box set)
