Playfully sinister
22 March 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

This film really appealed to me, as I love the lush mountainous Eastern Europe countryside, and the hospitality of the locals. If you ever have the chance to visit Eastern Europe or the Balkans, don't hesitate to go.

Christopher McDonald(Happy Gilmore's Shooter McGavin) gives a remarkable performance, if not over-the-top, as an archaeologist determined to find the tomb of an evil child prince who enjoyed public displays of torture. The site has a history with McDonald as well, his family was brutally slain here when he was a child. Tagging along is his girlfriend/boss, former Miss Virgina Lisa Aliff, and his drunk photographer friend and his annoying yoga obsessed wife. Throw in character actor Vincent Schiavelli, as his father's assistant and current mental patient, determined to seek revenge, and you have a solid involving story.

The torture chamber was brilliantly constructed, and Christopher McDonald's deranged enthusiasm was classic. Lisa Aliff provides the skin, and it is rather noteworthy, she is an enchanting beauty. I have watched this film over and over again, and like it just as much as the first time I viewed it.
