The horror, the horror
17 July 2015 | by gcleary-195-868423See all my reviews

This lame, stumbling hand-held horror is so boring it qualifies more as torture than mystery. So bad it's not funny! It has a slight cult following as do most movies with a low budget and fewer ideas. According to the director Louis Nero it attempts "Two perspectives: the exoteric and the esoteric one." Sadly it only manages to achieve the idiotic. Still, respect to Louis for trying. His other films have been quite trying too. Hmm what else can one say? It stars F. Murray Abraham who I liked in Amadeus and Scarface. It's his fault I went along. It also includes Franco Zeffirelli and he is from Florence so I guess that is relevant!
