Storyline

Rasmus Bentley and his lover, Maria, are quickly climbing the ladder of success. One afternoon, after the closure of a deal which will secure their lives together forever, a terrible turn of events occurs. One year earlier, an eccentric scientist is brutally murdered in his sprawling ancient castle. His notary, Rasmus, calls together the man's heirs listed in his will, but as they all gather at the castle, they fail to realize that the murderer is still haunting the ancient halls. One by one, the group is methodically hunted down by the lunatic, whose vicious bloodbath is far from complete... The fates of Rasmus and Maria have been foretold, but how did this madness begin?

I am in two mind about this one...........

This movie starts with a couple, who at this point we know nothing about other than they are lovers, getting brutally 'murdered' by someone or something in a wide brimmed hat to conceal his/hers/its face. After they are both dispatched we cut to a 'castle' in europe somewhere and a caption on the bottom of the screen informing us that it is 'a year earlier'. Straight away the owner of this 'castle' Arnold is also brutally killed. Three gory deaths within the first ten minutes, a good start. Anyway, Arnolds relatives are informed and called together at this 'castle' for the reading of his will. As you can probably guess they start to mysteriously disappear. I think that this is basically a pretty decent low budget horror. Its twisted, someone throws his own freshly severed arm out of a nearby window to try and raise some help. Its perverted, we get the maid dressed up as a dominatrix and a chained up slave groveling at her feet. And its sick, a very joyful killer cuts a woman in half with a chainsaw in close up, and an unlucky guy gets his throat ripped out with a meat hook. But it has its problems, for instance the opening three murders are done by killers unknown to the viewer. But soon after the killers and their motives are revealed when the fourth victim dies making the way the opening murders were staged with an unknown killer pointless. The photography is quite poor consisting mainly of master shots and virtually no close ups. It seems as if the director wanted to film each scene as quickly as possible, with as few camera set ups as he could manage. While pretty gory there are gorier out there. The blood looks fake, really thin and watery. The make up effects could certainly have been better too. Oh, and you never see the 'castle' just its front door. Inside its just like a large modern house so forget about dark candle lit corridors and gothic looking rooms. It does however have its good points. It moves along like a rocket, your never too far away from the next murder. Could have been better but its not too bad I suppose.
