Directed by Michele Soavi
A serial killer stalks the cast of a play based on his gruesome murders in this stylish and scary Italian slasher. When an injury brings a cast member to a doctor at a nearby mental hospital, an evil patient hitches a ride back to the theater in her trunk. Before long, the cast find themselves locked in the theater, where the killer—wearing an eerie owl mask—begins staging their horrific death scenes, one by one. After assisting Dario Argento for most of the 1980s, director Michele Soavi (THE CHURCH) broke out on his own with this chilling feature debut.

This movie was brought to my attention by a dedicated slasher film fan of mine. This is a nice little hidden gem that I don't hear a lot of people talk about. I do love how music was incorporated throughout the entire film because I didn't expect to hear rock music throughout several of the chase scenes of the movie to help break up the tempo, it kept things really engaging and fun. I absolutely think this film has one of the best final girl confrontations with the killer that I've personally watched. Really loved the ending and how satisfying it was.
Perfect Italian Slasher. So much fun.
