Good concept, poor execution
30 November 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Some of you may remember "La Casa Dalle Finestre Che Ridono", Pupi Avati's first outing in the horror genre, that took place in a truly terrifying Italian province, and with a plot reminiscent of the best early Dario Argento movies. But like Argento's recent movies, Avati's return to horror after the disappointing "Zeder" is everything but scary. Avati had a good idea (somehow reminiscent of his first horror) and a great cast including some fine American actors: yet the execution is that of a B movie. Or worse. A missed opportunity, for sure, given that the movie is beautifully photographed and had a rather strong premise. At least, however, it is an attempt on the part of Italian movie makers, always so entangled in the comedy genre, to attempt something different. It is a pity that Avati's long awaited return to horror turns out to be a rather boring and insignificant experiment.
