At the very beginning of the film, Elena calls Francesco to announce Gilderoy's arrival at the studio. Although the film is set in Italy, when she picks up the phone a continuous dial tone is heard, which is normal for the US or UK; however, the actual dial tone would have sounded very differently in Italy, a country where the phone system has a very distinctive and non-continuous dial tone (consisting of a 425Hz tone with a duration of 0.6sec followed by a 1 second pause, followed by a 0.2 sec tone then a 0.2 sec pause, repeated in a loop until the first digit is dialed).

The opening credits are actually put together of those from The Equestrian Vortex, the fictional horror flick that's going to be post-dubbed in the movie, with fast-cut animations, medieval depictions of hell, demons, naves, animal skeletons and tortured female faces, mostly red and black colored.

I was so looking forward to this movie. The subject matter looked appealing, and the setting and storyline interesting. As a sound recording buff with an interest in vintage gear it looked ideal. What I got was a mishmash - competent direction, decent acting, decent cinematography, coupled with completely hopeless plot and editing. It's one of those films that starts promisingly and just goes down and down. The nature documentary clip which suddenly intrudes towards the end is one of the worst pieces of poor editing and plot illogicality I've ever seen. I recorded this from TV, and seriously thought the tuner had glitched onto another channel for five minutes. Repetitive lazy editing, cheating scary bits, just totally disappointing. I really don't think you can justify crappy bits by implying that you are paying homage to a genre which used to have crappy bits.. unless you're making a pastiche. Judging by the awards I see this has won your mileage may vary. Now to look at some reviews to see what subtlety and greatness I missed.
