The best American giallo !
25 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

The best American Giallo (Italian Argento-like thriller) is made by a German guy ! It definitely is a giallo-like movie, mostly because of its secluded location and the almost-supernatural feel of the killer's presence, denoted by the eerie flash of his camera (though the bloodshed is avoided : I have nothing against gory violence, but it would seem out of place in this one.) I don't see any reference to "Seven", but scary thrillers have been before. Avoid at all costs pan&scanned version.
