See it for laughs, not screams
23 February 1999 | by Tom-267See all my reviews

Satanic Attraction was a hard-to-find video. This is not at all my kind of movie--a slasher flick from late eighties Brazil-- but my friend Sarah provides the voice for one of the characters in the English language version!

The movie takes itself fairly seriously, though the acting is pretty bad. Nothing but cliche characters, of course no character development. But with a group of non-professionals (several of them students from the US visiting Brazil) providing the voices for the dubbed version, the final result is pretty hilarious. I enjoyed it in kind of a "Mystery Science Theater 3000" way. Actually, I'd nominate the movie for their lampooning. It would be an honor!

The story is hard to follow and seems pointless toward the end. The end is anticlimactic as well-- "What just happened?" Because of the poor acting and sound quality, it is hard to separate the story they want to tell from all the running around and screaming.

No, better yet: this film could use someone like Woody Allen to provide an entirely new dialog and storyline like he did in "What's up Tiger Lily?"
