This is an excellent giallo and Italian horror tribute
29 October 2012 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie tonight at "Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre XIII" Horror and Fantastic Film Festival here in Argentina.

I knew what the movie was about, and the remembrance of the Italian horror classic Suspiria it bears, but the truth is this movie takes it to another level and will blow you with the quality accomplished.

The story is about a girl who's dream is to became an excelling actress and enters an acting school founded by a controversial acting teacher of the 70's. There, she discovers that the forbidden training method used by the already late Gdula hasn't been forgotten entirely... and so have its horrors.

To sum up, this movie has great shots and the exact amount of gore needed to enjoy a well balanced Italian horror movie, plus an Excellent soundtrack that take you to the place of the protagonist more than once.

So if you are in for a great Italian horror tribute, don't forget to check this one out.
