Louis Anthony Colello,
Six ex-classmates decide to spend some holidays together. To enjoy a short rest period and some amusement, they rent a manor house in the countryside, upon where to forget the raving madness of the city life. After they get to know the priest living in the adjoining church, the group moves into the house. Very soon, the convivial mood progressively deteriorates, while in the house strange phenomena start to happen, apparently paranormal. The journey turns into a nightmare when Giorgio, one of the mates, starts to have aberrant behaviors, until he shows evident signs of what properly seems a diabolic possession. While Alessandro, his best friend, tries to find a scientific and rational explanation to the happenings, the other friends trust in Father Elia, the priest. He feels Giorgio is surely possessed by the devil, and tries to exorcise him. But in the end, all the people will figure out that what is happening goes over their ability to understand, and moreover, their possibility to ... Written by
BACK FROM HELL is an Italian stab at the found footage genre, concerning a group of friends who hole up at a historic house in the countryside and soon encounter a sinister demonic presence who takes over one of their own. The viewer is thereafter subject to endless shaky-cam footage, those clichéd camera 'problems', and lots of dodgy acting.
The odd choice was made to shoot this in English with an Italian cast, all of whom struggle with thick accents and the vagueness of the script. I actually found the whining voices to be pretty annoying and I wanted to punch out the characters after about half an hour in their company. The cinematography is poor, with 90% of the film taking place in the dark so you can't see what's meant to be happening, and nothing much happens. BACK FROM HELL seems to go on forever until an abrupt and unsatisfying climax, and it really is a patience tester for audiences.
