Sickest thing ever!
21 May 2006 | by dario_van_kuschnSee all my reviews

I've seen a lot of sick and disgusting movies. No big deal. But Jenifer, for some reason, seemed really sick and disturbing to me. I almost couldn't watch. I can't explain it, it wasn't the guts and gore of eating a cat, it wasn't the awful face of Jenifer. But the overall effect of it was really something. Watch this if you dare, but you will be saying to yourself (ok, more like screaming at the TV) WHAT THE...!!!

It is possible that some people will not like the ending, some even might find it predictable. But in no way is it disappointing, and in no way does it ruin the whole thing. It's a splatter of gore, just as I am used to with Dario Argento. It's not a masterpiece, but it is a very good (or should I say very evil, bad, filthy, sick) episode of the Masters of Horror series.
