The plot is simple: A group of married friends are on a 'getaway' weekend and they find themselves being killed off one by one. THATS IT ! Sounds like a "Ten Little Indians" clone, right ???? Wrong ! You have the brutality of "Fargo" in some spots and the wickedly DARK comedic moments as in "Pulp Fiction". If you liked both of those films, you will enjoy this little seen Bava masterpiece. The music is TOTALLY 60s, the outfits are right out of the Jimi Hendrix thrift store, and the stage sets look like a 'hippie' Brady Bunch dwelling. Its a FUN movie !
Without a doubt: This was WAY before its time. Very enjoyable ! Even though its not HORROR, (its more of a mystery), this is a MUST for Bava fans !
First off, these are Bava films, so you either love his late-60's work or hate it, period. The same things that we fans of his later 60's output love are usually the very same things that turn others off. So I'm not going to spend a lot of time reviewing the actual movie itself, but rather what's on display in them - the luscious Euro babes with big, teased hair and false eyelashes, the accompanying mini-skirts, go-go boots and chain belts, the futuristic furniture, accessories and decor (the same stuff that's resurgently popular today), the elaborate architecture and European landscapes, the cool cars, the extravagant, permissive lifestyles and hedonistic parties and, of course, Edwige Fenech.
I realize that these things have nothing to do with whether these are good movies or not, but I also know I'm not alone in my rabid fascination for all things from this particular time period, and that WILL have an impact on whether you enjoy these films. Derivitive plot? Sure. Annoying soundtrack? Yup.Read more ›
