a bit more energy than some of Lenzi's more sluggish films
3 January 2021 | by dopefishieSee all my reviews

A bit more energy than some of Lenzi's more sluggish films... there is some good tension here between the characters. It is well acted. Again, with most of Lenzi's work, all of the events don't quite add up when all is said and done, but at least the ride was fun and engaging! Very low body count. This one is not about giallo violence and focuses more on the emotional journey of the characters in the wake of a mysterious death.
