Mimsy Farmer portrays Sylvia, a chemist who begins to suffer from strange visions. She sees a mysterious woman in black applying perfume in a mirror, strangers following her everywhere she goes, and a ghostly little girl reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, who may be Sylvia herself as a child. It turns out that Sylvia stabbed her mother's sexually abusive boyfriend to death long ago, and now her visions are driving her to madness and cleaver-murders. The other possibility, however, is that literally all of Sylvia's friends are Satanists conspiring to cause her suicide. This is a remarkable film, weaving reality, fantasy and memory into an almost seamless fabric to dizzying and poetic effect.
Italian horror fans may know this film well, but this wonderful new disc makes sure that neophytes at the very least have the best possible introduction to its twisted charms. Raro Video's transfer offers a superlative presentation. --The Wall Street Journal
An absolutely essential release for anyone with an interest in unheralded classics of Italian film making or just looking for some solid, potent chills. --Mondo Digital
Highly recommended for the Italo-cult/giallo fans out there! --Twitch Films
