Review: If you are a Lucio Fulci fan and your looking for a balls to the wall gore fest then you may want to stay away, now if you are looking for a well crafted thriller than look no further. Now in my view this is his most subtle film that he has done. The acting and characters are written and performed quite flawlessly, but after awhile I found some of them to be kinda dull. The one downfall to this film to me when you find out the twist it feels very anti-climactic. Other than that and the characters getting kinda dull there is nothing else I found wrong about this film. Now I can agree that this film is a masterpiece in it's own right, and Lucio Fulci has once again showed me that he can do more than horror films and do them well without restraint. Overall this was a good thriller with a good cast and I think more people should add this lost gem into their DVD collection. I give this film a 4.5 out of 5!
