Great fun
8 November 2001 | by (Zürich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This movie mixes a typical revenge plot with the classic horror theme of the devil on earth and the eccentric attitudes of movie people, especially directors and screenwriters. Lamberto Bava adds some dark humor and cites a few horror classics (e.g. "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" in at least two sequences) to make the film as a whole a surprisingly pleasant and entertaining experience. Also a big plus are Tomas Arana ("La Chiesa") and David Brandon ("Stagefright") in the male leading roles, and Simon Boswell's simplistic but very effective sound track. There are also a bunch of quite gory scenes that make one wonder if this really is a TV production (but Italians never had problems with gory TV films, as, e.g., Lucio Fulci's "La Casa nel Tempo" proves), especially one nasty knock out by a golf ball (Oops... it went right through the eye...). Lamberto Bava keeps the pace fast throughout the movie, which also adds to the viewing pleasure.

Probably Bava's best of his eight TV movies he directed from 1987 to 1990, and certainly the goriest. The only letdown is that this unique film is extremely rare to find with no official home video release ever yet and none in sight.
