I bet this would be a magnificent film if you were on shrooms or acid or were recovering from heavy dental sedation, but sober, it could be used as punishment. Atrocious acting, bad effects, incoherent plot and editing, and no one worth rooting for. Yeah, I know it's a "tribute" to giallo and '70s horror, but it was still awful.
This was everything I love about B horror films. Little to no dialogue, cheap special effects, plot??? Who cares! Loved it.
Very odd, the concept is really cool and i enjoyed it for the most part. It drags unnecessarily and makes it a little hard to follow and the music sounds like its falling of the reels and under water. Otherwise i enjoyed it.
An eerie and secretive religious sect with a longstanding plan of dominant evil no matter the cost to human life. This really resonated with me on a Sunday in the US. Excellent visual storytelling filled with fire and water and crimson, accompanied by plenty of creepy sound. Every character you meet has some crazy idiosyncrasy, my fav was the random spider guy on the bus. Well made and a damn good watch.
A film steeped in Gothic atmosphere and grotesque imagery. It wears its influences on its sleeve for better and worse (I'd say those influences are Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci; the story owes a bit to Lovecraft, though he never wrote anything so heavily religious). I enjoyed it, but the measured pace and slight, sometimes incoherent plot may alienate some viewers.
