Goofs

When Moebius throws that burning paper bag down the well in Miriam's cellar, you can see a stick attached to the bag, "sliding" it down the way. This had to be done, because the well was built horizontally to make filming easier. See more »

A slow and incoherent horror flick with horrible soundtrack
12 October 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Soavi has succeeded in making bizarre films in his career and my favourite above them all is Dellamorte Dellamore (aka The Cemetery Man). So the expectations were quite high for this movie. It is understandable that Soavi was finding himself as a director and with Dario Argento the film may end up being interesting at least and incoherent at most.

The script was written by Argento with a couple of others and we all know that most Argento's films have quite a weak script and this time it's not different. People who know Argento's films can see his impact on this film and some fans may even like this but for anyone else there isn't much to see.

The film would have been so much better with higher quality soundtrack, so if there had been someone like Morricone himself making a few scores for the film it'd have raised the film to a higher level.

Secondly the film should be cut to 90 minutes, so easily about 30 minutes could be cut out without losing anything significant. The film doesn't engage as much as it should and i was just waiting for it to end after the first hour.

Acting isn't too good either. I wasn't expecting to see a masterpiece and i can watch and even respect a bad movie. But this is just a bland "americanized" horror flick which lacks a sense of style that many Italian horror films used to posses.

In overall many fans may like the film but for anyone else it's just a waste of time.
