Italy, today. Mark Draveni, 19, disgustingly wealthy, is the charismatic leader of a teenager brotherhood, the Demons. The Demons are bloodthirsty and lethal, albeit quite outlandish. Among them there's a martial arts master (Berserk), a hip hop madman nicknamed Spike, the cooler-than-ice computer whiz called Conan, and the gorgeous ninja woman Kite. All of his sheer power, though, can't give Mark the strenght to face his lovely girlfriend Giulia, 18. Giulia's pregnant and resolute to keep the baby, a prospect that makes Mark to freak out. After the umpteenth furious fight with Giulia, Mark is seduced by a new schoolmate: the malicious blondie Serena Cursi. Serena is morbidly fascinating in her natural coldness. Mark and Serena have wild sex, but Serena soon vanishes. Sometime later, Mark meets Uncle J., former best friend of the Dravenis, just released out of prison. He desperately warns Mark against Serena and her unbreakable curse. It's an eerie circle of blood which dates back to ... Written by Kamandi <>

Did You Know?


The screenwriter, Andrea Materia, is a long-time fan and historian of comic books, especially Japanese manga. So he filled the script with lots of manga references. Most of the Demons gang members, for example, are named after manga/anime characters. Kite takes her codename from the famed action/x-rated movie, Berserk from the namesake hero by Kentaro Miura, Conan spoofs "Meitantei Conan" by Gosho Aoyama and finally Spike is a homage to Spike Spiegel (the main character in Shinichiro Watanabe's "Cowboy Bebop").

awful, awful, awful - worth watching for laughs
29 March 2008 | by (Boston MA, USA) – See all my reviews

U can tell the movie is gonna suck from the very first frame. The film is shot so badly that you wonder if it was done by somebody else maybe it would have been worth watching. The story wouldn't be that bad if a little more creative juice went into the making of this flick. I understand low budget but often to make a low budget movie work what u need is a good director. This is not the case for The Mark. Director Mariano Equizzi can easily be placed in the little black book of people i'll never see the work of again. In addition to that the dubbing (??dubbing??) and sound mixing is just terrible, high-school student movie terrible. The music it's all right. Over all if you come by this movie on emule get it and watch it just for the giggles :D
