Quotes

Dimitri: Let me live! I can't stand the pain! The pain!
Jessica Barrett: Pain? What do you know of pain? What do you know of the pain of sweet endless hatred, the loneliness of living always in another's body, the knowledge that you will never be yourself? Nobody knows THE EXQUISITE SUFFERING OF THE DAMNED, but you will, Dimitri, because you will die in my image!
Dimitri: You lied, lied, you lied, you lied!
Jessica Barrett: ...and I give you eternal damnation.
Dimitri: Oh, lied, lied, lied, lied!...

Another lost gem released by Code Red

In all fairness, this movie is a ripoff. However, if you know what it's gonna be and you're cool with that, it is damn entertaining.

From the get-go with the kids cussing and the bizarre antics of the parents, you know you're in for an Italian trash treat. It just gets better and better. By the end, you'll be loving life, if you're anything like me.

Recommended for fans of Fulci, Argento, D'Amato, etc. It was a little more old school than I thought it was gonna be, but I'm good with that. It is definitely more early 70's than late 70's. I like that Bava used the same kid in "Shock" aka "Beyond the Door 2." 6 out of 10, kids.
