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").

Terrible Italian horror.
26 December 2006 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

Mariano Equizzi was the director of an interesting Italian sci-fi short movie named "Syrena". For this reason I was curious to see "The Mark" and believe me, I really wanted to like it! But, well, the movie is VERY amateurish and also very boring. It's surely influenced from the last Japanese horror movies (especially The Ring / Ringu) and it has not a single new idea. I have seen it just a week ago and i've already forgot the story. And better to not talk about the actors. I have often laughed...

As you can image this is a warning: avoid "The Mark", you will save money and time!
