Not for me..By Anderssen (6 reviews) from Bristol , 15 Feb 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm a big fan of Gialli, hence I was looking forward to this movie, which is billed as being a homage to gory European Gialli.
This movie certainly has the setting, and the Argento style lighting, but - in my opinion - that's where any similarity to a Gialli stops.
There are a couple of things to be aware of before watching this. There is no plot and hardly any dialog. These are two elements I personally dislike in any film, so this really was not for me.

Give it a missBy Woodman (10 reviews) from Wigan uk , 29 Sep 2011I found the film very disappointing ,slow, no dialog so to speak of couldn't really follow it to be honest, sorry not for me.
Emperor's New Clothes in ActionBy jamescart (25 reviews) from Kingston upon Thames , 24 Sep 2011This film got some very good reviews. I do not share that enthusiasm. I saw some pretentious would be art film trying to be so clever with 'intelligent' homage to Argento and other directors but failing miserably to construct anything interesting after ten minutes. This was a film of no story relying on experimental sequences. That was not enough to hold my attention or to stop me getting increasingly annoyed by this blatant 'emperor's new clothes'. I started picture searching this and finallly pressed stop half way through the film when I could bear it no longer.
Failed arthouse?By Charlie2000 (67 reviews) from Northampton , 24 Sep 2011This seems to be an attempt to make an 'arthouse' homage to horror movies. Unfortunately, for me, it was like watching paint dry!
I've watched a lot of really slow, 'difficult', films in my time, but I found this one irritating and boring.
There are some interesting, if somewhat ludicrous visuals (e.g. the 'race' between a girl and a younger boy), but overall it looked like the film makers were trying too hard. And that includes the psychedelic throwback coloured filters used in one scene.
It also doesn't help that the characters are barely fleshed out, and pretty unlikeable.
Still, some critics seemed to love it - they must have been on something when they watched it!
Gia No-NoBy ElTerceroHombre (4 reviews) , 20 Sep 2011You might as well rent a real Italian slasher from the 70s (I recommend Bava or Argento) because this is the cinematic equivalent of shatting your pants in public.
nice experimentBy a customer , 15 Sep 2011not for everyones taste, a good effort but i got tired of it in the end, i felt it lacked substance
