A Few Gore Scenes Can't Make Up for the Lack of a Story
10 July 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Bloody Psycho (1989)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Low rent Italian horror film has Dr. Vogler (Peter Hintz) going to a castle to treat a wheelchair bound woman with some sort of psychic therapy. It doesn't take long for a mysterious zombie in a wheelchair to show up with plenty of dead bodies left behind.

BLOODY PSYCHO was one of the films that got released with the tagline "Presented by Lucio Fulci." The Italian horror market was clearly dried up during the late 80s but I guess producers thought they could milk whatever they could by throwing Fulci's name on the pictures. This film here could have been so much better had it been made with a budget a few years earlier but as it stands there's just not enough good things to be found.

The biggest problem is that there's so many dialogue scenes that really go nowhere. Yes, we understand the castle the haunted and we understand the doctor doesn't believe it. Hell, he doesn't even believe it when he sees the zombie figure. These dialogue scenes just aren't all that interesting and the lack of any real story doesn't help. The film does benefit from a semi-effective score as well as some nice cinematography by Silvano Tessicini.

The gore effects are minor but they include a tongue being pulled out and a rather stupid death by wheelchair. Some of these effects would later be seen in Fulci's A CAT IN THE BRAIN. Hintz is rather boring in his part but Louise Karnsteeg, Brigitte Christensen and Paul Muller add a little entertainment.
