In the 70s Matteusz Gdula invented an acting method that was supposed to make every actor "shine". Still, lots of his students die mysteriously and Gdula commits suicide. His method gets banned. Now: Stella, an ambitious, but rather untalented drama student, gets accepted at the "Matteusz Gdula"-school. When she bears witness to some strange occurrences, she gets drawn into the bizarre and deadly web that surrounds the dark secret of the school... Written by Anonymus

Ambition vs. Reality
28 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

The movie looks pretty good and the work that has gone into the art department is quite a feet, especially considering the budget. On the other hand, the director tells us, that some of the equipment were borrowed from schools (art schools for the masks). Still you have to respect the choices that were made. It's obvious what this movie is paying homage too and in general terms it succeeds.

The story does have some issues, but if you're a fan of Giallo, you know that story was never something that people paid too much attention to. Character flaws and other things might spoil your fun, otherwise you will get a nice little horror movie with neat effects
