Cheap mess - but quite entertaining
13 January 2001 | by (Zürich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The production values for this film which places the doors of hell in a cave must have been extremely low; probably even lower than in Umberto Lenzi's 'Black Demons' (aka Demoni 3) he made two years later.

There is not much going on in the film, and Lenzi doesn't even seem to try to deliver some thrilling atmosphere. At least there are some cheap but effective gore scenes that are strikingly similar to the gore FX in 'Black Demons' (the guy who did those is maybe only capable of faking gouging out eyes and splitting skulls with axes - who knows?).

And yet this mess is quite entertaining. It could be that the German dubbing is reason for my opinion, because the (uncut) German video version boosts such a bad dubbing that it delivers lots of unintended humor to please the viewer. This is pure trash, and people who want to see good films by Umberto Lenzi rather stick to his violent police thrillers of the 1970s.
