Pretty uninteresting., 29 April 2010
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

Having murdered her husband and daughter Carol invents a new identity to start a new life.Unfortunately her tendency to express their unhappiness or disapproval by murdering her victims could jeopardize her romance with mathematician and philosopher Ignacio from Spain."Parano" mixes a bit of nasty gore including child murder with philosophical mumbo-jumbo.It features a cameo of Joe Dallesandro.The gore includes pretty splashy decapitation of an aspiring writer and intellectual and the double murder at the beginning of the film.There are endless tirades about mathematics and philosophy.To put it simply "Parano" is a pretentious and boring trash with not enough gore and nudity.But beware:"The patient is a woman aged 27,detained seven months ago.No occupation,she is suffering from chronic psychosis with delusions,hallucinations and paranoid symptoms".4 out of 10.
