Viewing Notes

Pretty tepid outing from Fulci here. The story isn’t bad even if it is derivative, but the film is obviously trying to pull off more than its meager budget will allow.

Still, it’s Fulci, and there’s enough to make it mildly entertaining at least. I loved the overly long, slightly goofy, suffocation-by-snails scene, the awkward nude sex scene shot from above that (probably unintentionally) reveals a little too much, and the practical effects, even if they are too few and far between.

Definitely the kind of hot mess you’d have expected to see at a 42nd street grindhouse theater, so a perfect way to kick off Deucember.
