Not the way it is but the way you imagine it could be
24 August 2006 | by (Yerevan, Armenia) – See all my reviews

This is an inordinate special movie, so will be my review. Neither in a way it's terrific but nor it's awful. Same time can't say it's average. The grade is for this movie is hard to figure out. I can only say I loved it. To be quite sincere I'll encounter all the ingredients. It starts out very realistic, preparing more to a drama than horror (in a good way) First 30 minutes we get to known to the following three things: the city is under the power of governor Hoffner, Georgia (Monreale) is telepathic, Rick is a former boxer a bit sick in head but fairly a nice man and in love in Georgia (the most tragic circumstance of the movie), Georgia's gift gives her nightmares seeing a maniac after her little boy Stephen some time. Hoffner's son and his two friends make an attempt to rape Georgia. First one misses, the second time they manage. But first they knock off Rick that comes to Georgia's house with flowers. After they beat Georgia to coma, rape her and leave, police arrests Rick. Rick knows his sickness and even thinks he could do it. He doesn't talk, so nobody doubts it's his work. Then governor orders two guys from his security and the autopsy doctor to murder Rick in the cell make it like a suicide so that he never talks again… Then the atmosphere kicks in – Georgia brings Rick back to life. Rick is out to punish everybody involved in this case – three bustards, two cops and even the governor. Frankly I wasn't sure how I felt about this movie watching for the first time until I watch the second time and realized I'd love to watch it again. It seems a lot longer though it's only 93 minutes all because the script is rich and deep. Some moments are just great but there are some serious goofs unfortunately – straight after an excellent scene of resurrection follows the autopsy scene when you clearly see the corpse breathing and even winking (so does Monreale in the very end however the goof is saved by the unexpected final shot that will keep you thinking or at least watch the movie again). The Frankenstein make-up is very good but the others are not that compelling. The killing scenes start well, and even with very little gore they are nice because of the good acting. Especially I enjoyed the two security guys' murder scene. Acting provides a lot of great little moments that keep you inside it. The script is very good. Richly colourful, atmospheric, suspenseful, dramatic, dynamic, excellent score. Yes, the pleasure of this movie is the atmosphere. D'Amato is genius to shot that kind of masterpiece with such a low budget. The thing is you don't that see it the way the make-up is but the way it could be with a little more money. Really, I can assure you despite of "considered" one of D'Amato's wicker horror efforts, it surely involves Joe's talent the most (just like "Endgame" and "Absurd" – other two hard to get flicks, Joe's best, for me this is the third one) Decent movie, it's good as thriller and as drama and a little horror. It's scary not that scary as traditional but as dramatic horror, I mean it's more "Dead man's shoes" that other Frankenstein movies. 7 out of 10! Don't believe all the reviews making you believe it's crap. Genius. One word. Don't miss it. If you like being entertained be sure it's highly entertaining. I'd rather by the soundtrack. Love you Joe D'Amato. You were so good. R.I.P.
