This is NOT an excellent giallo and Italian horror tribute
6 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A horrible German attempt at horror. Shot on video, and looks it.

Bad lighting? Check. Bad sound? Check. Bad acting, writing, direction, editing? Check check check check.

I was hoping for a cool, non-traditional, German version of classic Italian horror, and it turned out to be just another student film, with all that implies.

Back to school, Andreas. Another film equivalent to a premature infant.

The parts where they tried to emulate the look of old film footage was just embarrassing.

Not even a full-blown 70's horror nut-job could enjoy this garbage, made even worse by horrible cinematography, if it can even be called that. More like, DSLR-fail.

Cheap digital cameras have opened the doors for more and more films like these. Sure, there were bad films in the past too, but the volume was infinitely smaller.

Please, DL and watch this film. See for yourselves.
