great first hour, the rest you can have!
7 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie starts off very interestingly with a band fronted by a female singer who sounds like a man and it's very amusing for quite sometime and beautifully made and I thought the acting was alright, actually.

however, the last 30 minutes it begins to plummet precipitously and by the end it's a chore to get through and the very end is just horrible...

this is a movie in the "Italian horror" tradition and ... suffers in much the same way as so many of the gialli etc do also... great cinematographic technique, great atmosphere, amusing gore (towards the end), some respectable shocks along the way, but story is a mess, and as I said, the ending is just abysmal.

still an all it's well worth a look if you're into argento, fulci, et al. stands up pretty respectably amongst that crowd eh what
