Trivia

This movie was partly inspired by true events known as the "Circeo Massacre" (in Italian: "Massacro del Circeo"), which occurred primarily in the commune of San Felice Circeo, Italy at the end of September of 1975. Three young men raped and tortured a 19-year-old woman and a 17-year-old girl for two days, then murdered the woman; the girl avoided being murdered by pretending to be dead. See more »

German version was cut by ca. 18 minutes to secure a "Not under 18" rating. See more »

Nod To The Blind Dead Series
1 October 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

An Italian horror flick that has a group of people heading up to a party at night. The night takes a drastic turn when the men start raping and beating the women. This is where the film might not be for everybody as the rape scenes are intense. Things take another turn when Roman gladiator zombies show up swinging axes and maces and they are after everyone not just the rapists.

The film takes about 30 minutes to get going and it takes an hour before we see the zombie dudes. You will have to read this one as it is Italian. A set back in the film is how dark a lot of the scenes are. In fact one scene a guy is screaming and you don't know for about one minute that he has stepped on a ball with spikes in it.

I think the director is giving his nod to the Blind Dead series as there is similarities galore. The violence is heavy at times with mostly heads being cut off or ripped off. They like to nail people to crosses as well. A head being smashed near the end looks a little cheese but other than that good special effects.

Overall not bad but could have been a lot sicker.
