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.

OK, so first I have been watching many recent British films and generally I have been impressed.
I am a big giallo fan. 2 recent movies supposedly have been inspired by giallos, this one and Amer. I have not been satisfied with either. Both of them have the same problem. Pretentiousness. That is one thing giallos didn't have. The one thing I like about giallo films is that they were unashamedly trashy and enjoyable. They didn't try to make a Cannes film award winning film or anything like that. They didn't try to confuse people for the hell of it. They made confusing stories, yes, but it all came together in the end. That's what made them great.
Anyway I didn't like it. First I don't mind if you are going to make slow burner horror or anything pretentious. But at least something needs to happen. Which doesn't mean somebody cutting vegetables or anything like that(you will get what I am saying when you see it). I don't think the filmmakers really cared to make a direct horror film anyway.
I didn't enjoy it.
