Andrea Bianchi's nasty giallo.
13 October 2003 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Massacre" revolves around a series of murders that are happening around the filming of a horror film called "Dirty Blood".The film opens with extremely gory murder and mutilation of a street prostitute by a hooded maniac."Massacre" is a fine Italian gore film.There is plenty of sleaze and lots of misogynistic violence to satisfy fans of Italian cult cinema.The killings are mean spirited and gory as hell.The soundtrack is annoying and the acting is bad,but overlook that and we have an enjoyable piece of Italian splatter.Lucio Fulci actually used the gore scenes from this movie in his own "Nightmare Concert"/"A Cat In the Brain"(1990).Give this one a look-you won't be disappointed.
