Beyond the front door of an old, decrepit house is buried a horrible and tragic past. One horryfing and gory night a family of four is brutally hacked to pieces. The only survivor is the young and beautiful housekeeper, Ella. When she steps out of the house one day, she has no idea that she is about to be snatched by failed bank-robber Jason Goodis. Goodis, however, could not have imagined that the innocent hostage he is dragging back inside, has an unquenchable thirst for blood! Written by
I saw the original version of this movie on telly and it went down pretty nicely for me, although the bottle of wine I had to myself while watching probably helped. The plot isn't terribly compelling and I'm pretty sure the acting wasn't great. However, I instantly warmed to the hot female lead character and as soon as she got down to gory business I was practically cheering. The gore is the key feature of this movie too, with an awesome gut munching (It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside) scene standing out, as well as a spot of eye violence and lots of other blood spattered craziness. The zombies looked a little two much like bandaged mummies daubed with green paint, to the extent that I spent some time after wondering if thats what they really were. Apparently not but thats the kind of film this is. Anyways, I'd say this one is worth watching despite its noticeable technical shortcomings, mainly because its an attractive lady doing a lot of the blood letting and some of the gore is ferocious, perhaps even kinda like Fulci. Basically, this is probably one for gore hounds only, but they should be quite pleased.
