An exciting effort to reproduce classic giallo feel!
9 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a nice surprise this movie really is. Is it perfect? Nope. But as a huge fan of giallo movies by Argento, Bava, Fulci (yes he did some good ones), Martino, etc.. I can honestly say that this movie for me is a multiple re-watcher! LOVE the color palate. There is one scene inside Roberta's apartment that really captures a Suspiria type feel in terms of the color washes! The musical score by Marco Werba is PHENOMENAL and deserves so much more attention from any fan of giallo musical scores. I can't say enough about it as it fits perfectly with the characters moods and what's happening on screen. The script follows the standards set for a good giallo with it's expected twist ending, and twisted logic. It also has an certain sense of the sexual supernaturalness (is that a word?) along with the standard giallo storyline which I liked a lot. The acting is much better than most independent low to mid budget productions. And specifically in the case of lead actress Yassmin Pucci I find myself really drawn to her. She does a wonderful job and evokes a true melancholy mood inside me watching her performance. She is beautiful, sultry, sad, and above all...mesmerizing on screen. Joe Zaso plays a blind detective in an homage to Dario Argento's Cat O' Nine Tails and deserves lots of credit for injecting his own passion for the genre into this film. So if you haven't seen a good giallo in a while and want to feel that special feeling you use to get when watching them back in the day so to speak. Then I highly suggest you set the lights down and settle into the Darkness that Surrounds Roberta!
