praised in Italy but for no reason at all
5 February 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Attending a convention that went on for 3 days we all got mail that there would be a flick available approved by Dario Argento. The next big thing coming out Italy. It was sold out immediately the first day, the second they they sold new copies and the third day it was already OOP. Wow, limited on 1500 copies you must get a hold on your own copy. And have a look, the score made by an ex Goblin, Claudio Simonetti. effects by Sergio Stivaletti not unknown in the genre. Lamberto Bava, Luigi Cozzi, they all praised it.

What an expectation I had and what a failure it was. Sure, it do has all the elements of a Giallo and it do has vibrant colors and expertly contrast with clever usage of shadows and lighting. But it just couldn't catch my attention throughout the flick. The killer is never revealed. The puppets used for narration annoyed me and the journalist telling about how to make a program was way too long.

What it did had were nice chicks walking around and some decent killings. A bit of nudity here and there and close ups of boobs and even Nikol Brown as a prostitute goes full frontal but all elements were there but it just didn't fix. There isn't simply a twist or a real story.

But people who love the new Giallo's like Amer (2012) will love this but for me I was left with a bitter feeling. Hyped for no reason at all.

Gore 2/5 Nudity 1,5/5 Effects 3/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
