Storyline

Piotr Strumienski (Roman Wilhelmi) is driven to the edge by haunting memories of his dead wife Angelika, and because of his obsession, his new wife Ola is driven to taking a lover - who mysteriously becomes paralyzed. Piotr keeps a special house on his property dedicated to Angelika, and he daydreams about making love to her there. His visions are so intense and real, that when he sees his son with a local, mute young woman, he shoots and wounds her because deluded, he thinks she is Angelika. After that tragedy, Piotr razes "Angelika's" house and it looks as though his fixation is healed, and everything should continue as normal - but that turns out to be a deception.

Polish erotic fantasy horror.
30 November 2009 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Widziadlo" by Marek Nowicki is pretty notable for Polish fantasy/horror genre as it features plenty of sleaze and full-frontal nudity.The film is very loosely based on Karol Irzykowski's novel.The beginning of XX century.Piotr Strumienski lives with his wife Ola in a small villa.He is constantly haunted by memories of his tragically deceased wife Angelica.Ola has enough of his obsessions and she has a romance with her cousin.Piotr has one son with Ola named Pawelek with whom he shares his haunting memories.A young deaf village girl tries to seduce Pawelek...This lurid Polish horror melodrama is well-shot and quite atmospheric.Dorota Kwiatkowska who plays the naked spirit of Angelica has to be one of the sexiest Polish actresses ever.The sight of her riding naked on horse is a joy to behold.Anna Chodakowska,Hanna Mikuc,Marzena Trybala and Monika Braun also provide some nudity.8 out of 10.
