Recognisably Argento, 18 November 2011
Author: RetroRick from United Kingdom

Argento fans, and I am one of them, are hard task masters. Argento peaked in the 70s/80s and he has never quite got back to that stunning level of cinematic form. Having said that, if you can actually suspend the expectation that this will be a masterpiece of horror, then its quite possible you will enjoy this film, and get caught up with the scenery, the twisted characterisation and modest but still noteworthy gore (if you're a regular film-goer as opposed to a horror freak at least). Argento at this level is a fine way to wile away an hour and a half. It delivers style, a small measure of substance, and a fair if not necessarily always gripping story. And most of all, it is an Argento, and nothing like that abomination of camp, the Mother of Tears (why, Argento, what were you thinking?). The current rating is 4.4. Unfortunately that's going to stop a lot of people from seeing this, which is their loss. The master lives, he's just not over-stretching himself. And why should he when he can just enjoy himself with little outings like this.
