Crosses Dragonfly with Volcano and makes them both even hokier
Most of the movie is some guy visiting his late wife's home town in Italy. Apparently, she has been trying to contact him from beyond the grave, and some wide eyed pixie in the town is receiving her psychic broadcasts. But, like always in these "Message from Beyond" stories, the message is always incoherent. The medium the dead wife chooses: some girl who has never spoken since surviving a near-death experience. And she paints pictures like a little kid's exercises with finger paint. Sound like Dragonfly? It is, but even cheesier.
The old cliché of a town in danger with an obnoxious leader is used, of course. A priest is the bad guy du jour who ignores constant prophecies of doom, and thinks the girl needs an afternoon at the exorcism salon. You'll see random images that in the end prove to be meaningless, lots of confused people skulking around, and an evacuation sequence that looks like a kindergarten playground at recess.
Some of the actors really try (the priest and the mute girl are actually pretty good in their roles), but are caught up in a looping plot that never goes anywhere. Mercifully, nature's fury is eventually unleashed, making everything else that happened pretty much pointless. For a boring weekend afternoon only.
