Sella Turcica, Slow, but what a payoff.
15 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A soldier returns from war to a family happy to see him. Soon they become not so happy and by the end even less happy. Over the course of a couple of days the soldiers health deteriorates until the point the family know something is very wrong, by which point it is too late.

I watch a lot of low budget horror movies so I'm used to seeing terrible acting and low production values and it never usually puts me off. The acting here isn't great but I have seen a hell of a lot worse. Also it was good to see Camille Keaton again even in such a small role.

The film quality itself is pretty good but the sound is very muffled. The make up FX and gore FX towards the end of the movie are very good as anyone familiar with the Toetag movies would expect. At the end the way the soldier begins acting I found very chilling and thought his performance was easily the best.

My only problem with this movie was that it is painfully slow. As the returning soldier gets more ill his monologues become very slow and I found myself keep checking the running time for the movie wondering how much longer it was going on for.

If you were a fan of death dream but were disappointed it didn't quite go for the jugular then you owe it to yourself to check this out. It's nowhere near as classy but still very enjoyable.
