Originally intended by Dario Argento as a Comeback for colleague (though not friend) Lucio Fulci. Unfortunately, only a few weeks before filming was about to begin, Fulci died and on short notice, the directing job was handed over to special effects expert Sergio Stivaletti. See more »

While I agree with most of the other comments here - that the film has a lot of potential but unfortunately doesn't quite live up to it - I would like to mention that I really like the soundtrack for this film. Composed by Maurizio Abeni, it could be called "romantic horror film music". That is, very dramatic, melodically rich. It sounds a bit like Ennio Morricone and Danny Elfman put together. I feel the music brought a whole new dimension to the film. Without it, I would have shrugged the movie off as yet another horror flick.
For those who have frustrated themselves trying to order the CD from Amazon com, try Googling around. There are some retailers in Europe that sell it. I got mine from discPLUS.ch.
