Editorial Reviews

Fast Times At Ridgemont High meets Commando in this darkly comic and blood-soaked tale of education gone awry! Students must make the grade or meet their maker in this high school where teachers wield chainsaws and guns large enough to make the Trenchcoat Mafia run for cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frightening and superb!. July 10, 2006
By Ton
Format:DVD
The DVD-audio-commentary for this film could be seen as a bonus to Lloyd Kaufman's brilliant movie-school in a box "Make your own damn movie", as it explains in detail how this very cheaply made film was conceived, without being boring for even a second. But, that is only the commentary track by director Gionata Zarantonello, who indeed made a masterpiece that shows many times it's budget. Through his innovative way of shooting, using his actors and making use of the extraordinary locations he created a beautiful dreamlike film that takes the viewer away to a horrifying world of violence and abuse that everybody who has had a less-than-ideal time in school will immediately recognize. This seems to be sounding a bit paradoxial, but in the terrors shown and old wounds being ripped open again the recognition of someone in far away Italy showing exactly all these things you were never able to explain satisfyingly to anyone in such beautiful images makes for one of the finest cinematic experiences I ever encountered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh the humanity! October 3, 2004
Format:DVD
When I stumbled over "Medley," I initially had high hopes. A low budget horror film from Italy taking aim at the social and mental pressures of the public school system sure sounds like a great idea, doesn't it? Yes, it does. Just the fact that "Medley" arrived on our shores from the homeland of Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, and Ruggero Deodato was exciting in and of itself. Maybe, just maybe, I thought, what we have here might kick off a new wave of exciting Italian filmmaking. Even the Troma tag on the DVD couldn't dissuade me from thinking positive thoughts, although anyone remotely familiar with Lloyd Kaufman's company knows the Troma moniker is the kiss of doom as far as films go. Sadly, I feel it necessary to announce to the world that "Medley," a shot on video production created by some guy named Gionata Zarantonello, is a cinematic catastrophe on a global scale. I watched every excruciating minute of this seventy-minute film, and am convinced that I shall carry the scars inflicted on my mind by this claptrap to the grave. This is not the new Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, or Ruggero Deodato. I suspect these directors, the ones living anyway, would disavow this film on sight if they were offered the chance.

I should give Zarantonello credit on one small point; his film does live up to the title. What we have here is a medley of scenes, snapshots if you will, strung together by a point of view that sweeps and soars down school hallways. Problem is, not one of these self-contained scenes inspires any interest in what the movie tries to say. "Medley" avers that the Italian school system consists of sadistic teachers, impossible workloads, and students seeking to avoid it all.
