Bad, bad, bad movie...
20 January 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This film is horrible. Unfortunately, I know I'll never get enough of bad movies, so I'll keep looking for stuff like this, inflicting such pain to myself! I should have stopped watching this film, as soon as it showed its main characteristics; in fact, it looks like a sluggish mix of:

1) Contemporary standard pornography (photography, actors, dialogues, completely-out-of-sync dubbing, settings, lighting) without any hardcore sex, though (yeah, there were some nudities, but I wouldn't call it even soft-core).

2) A boring Italian TV "fiction" (as we call some of our soap opera-like made-for-the-TV series)

3) an amateurish, Home-made horror movie.

"Il male nella carne" has a ridiculous plot too: two thelepaths (only thelepathy could save such "actors" from the constant out-of-sync dubbing) try to stop THE EVIL from spreading around the world (well, to be honest, among 10 people at least, in some province of the North of Italy); while doing this (they never really do anything and their faces can barely show an expression while their minds "communicate"!), they partecipate in séances with other absolutely forgettable, non-acting people! Meanwhile, a myterious black figure, like a shadow (The Grim Reaper?!) walks around the set, apparently forcing people to murder! The gore is too amateurish and maybe I'd have liked it, if only the film would have showed some irony... but there were just these "serious", dull, badly overdubbed voices, vaguely speaking of evil forces and stuff like that, with very ordinary, uninteresting and rambling words! There was a dream sequence, that probably made me give two stars out of ten to this s**t, combined with the fact that I like independent horror.

Avoid this crap! Don't waste your time or, at least, waste it with some "so bad, it's good" flick, like Andreas Marfori's "Il Bosco 1" AKA "Evil Clutch"! Believe me, that's really a masterpiece, compared to the awful "Il male nella carne".
