Dark, Bizarre, Sick and Creepy

While parked in a remote spot lunching Chinese food with his partner, Detective Frank Spivey (Steven Weber) saves a disfigured woman called Jenifer (Carrie Anne Fleming) from being sliced with a meat cleaver by a deranged homeless man. He feels sorry for the retarded Jenifer, and takes her from an insane asylum and brings her home. Frank becomes obsessed for Jenifer, feeling lust and attraction for her lascivious body. When he realizes that she is a human beast, he moves with her to an isolated old cabin in the woods, with tragic consequences.

"Jenifer" is a dark, bizarre, sick and creepy tale of obsession and lust directed by the great Italian director Dario Argento. The story is gore and oddly erotic, with a creepy monster with a sexy body seducing a man with personal problems. The make-up is impressive, transforming the gorgeous Carrie Anne Fleming in a woman with a totally deformed face, in a very brave role of this young actress. I found also very impressive the scene when Frank and his family find Jenifer locked in the bathroom with the family's kitty. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Jenifer – Instinto Assassino" ("Jenifer – Killer Instinct")
