Splendid !
25 March 2019 | by vanburen-29644See all my reviews

Great little film that I picked up for just £5. Lots of nods to giallo films and will relate to people who stalked the video shops in the 80s such as myself looking for obscure films we thought we would never actually get to see. Give it a go you could do a lot worse with your 90 mins.
