About the Actor

Featuring Raine Brown (HORROR, AUNT ROSE, BARRICADE, SATAN'S PLAYGROUND, WOODS OF EVIL), Joseph Zaso (5 DEAD ON THE CRIMSON CANVAS, BARRICADE, RED MIDNIGHT), Eileen Daly (RAZOR BLADE SMILE, MACHINES OF LOVE AND HATE, PERVIRELLA) and Timo Rose (THE MUTATION TRILOGY, BARRICADE).

Product Description

From the producers of "BARRICADE" comes a shocking whodunit filmed entirely within Italy. A beautiful, but deeply troubled ex-painter named Roberta fills her days with erotic games and guiltless theft until one dark night when she is kidnapped. It seems a deranged art fan has an offer Roberta can't refuse and before long the beautiful ladies of Florence are slashed, sliced and diced all as part of a frightening plan.

3.0 out of 5 stars so so, but not bad for a film of such recent vintage September 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a longtime fan of Italian genre cinema (starting back in the early 60's and spanning through the 80's and even isolated instances to date), you'd think something like this would appeal to me. Having sat through, and loved, generally derided films from Joe D'Amato's Filmirage company and the likes of the Bianchi brothers, Lenzi and Deodato; having plumbed the heights and depths of the Italian subgenre from cannibal to zombie to nunsploitation to WWII-sploitation to erotic to comedy to poliziotteschi and beyond; being a proud owner of just about everything released by every major Italian director (and several minor ones) and every release put out by No Shame, Severin and MYA (as well as Italian releases by Shriek Show/Media Blasters, Blue Underground, Anchor Bay, etc.), you would certainly think this would be another notch on the video shelf, right? Well...wrong.

I'm not sure how to classify this one, first of all. While using a mainly Italian cast and set in Italy, the director appears to be one of those "backyard coppolas" from the US. While it's not quite "shot on video" quality, the whole production stinks of mid-90's "made for TV" productions such as Forever Knight. And while I admit to liking the first 2 seasons of that rather bizarre Canadian export, it's not exactly the kind of thing I'm into or looking for when I buy a DVD.

One of the film's presumed selling points is that it's supposed to be a faithful homage to the 1970's giallo. Well...sort of, but not really. I've seen closer homage back when I was still subscribing to C(Sk)inemax.
