Subtle horror
25 September 2000 | by (Zürich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Those who expect this Italian horror/thriller to be in the tradition of the late great Lucio Fulci's gorefests and only accept Italian horror cinema like this will surely be disappointed by this extremely subtle film. There is not one single gore effect in the whole movie - but it doesn't need any. This film tells the story about a young man who returns to the house where he grew up - just after the death of his father, whose reputation got destroyed by the suicide of a young woman he had an affair with. The young man soon gets obsessed by the house and the past of his dad... "Dove Comincia la Notte" is a film in the tradition of overtly subtle horror films like the beautiful "Un Sussurro nel Buio" from 1976, where no manifestation of the supernatural ever happens, yet the main characters are so haunted by a past event that they won't be able to escape in the end. An uncanny film, even though sometimes almost too subtle: 7 out of 10.
