Storyline

Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister. Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee. Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice accidentally free something from Earth's womb. A strange and alien color flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow. The color soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death. Written by Ivan Zuccon

A metaphor for 1943 Fascist Italy
10 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A modest but in ways a clever production which seems to miss the mark for viewers not familiar with events in 1943 fascist Italy .The melding of the Lovecraft story and the reality of the war years does not develop any of it's themes clearly .Pregnant with very good ideas the scope of the film is too narrow . It is perhaps best thought of as a nightmare . It would be interesting to know what might have been done with a much larger budget . I thought the actors were very good . The production in general was very well photographed . This was one of 8 titles in a DVD set called "8 Movies - Midnight Horror" which I got at my local Ralphs Market for $5.00
