Editorial Reviews

Toby, a troubled young man who lost his girlfriend in a tragic accident begins to put his life back together again. After spending years in a psychiatric institute, he takes a job as a tutor for a beautiful woman, Laura, who lives in her aunt's lonely mansion. But Toby's memories and this strange new environment quickly devolve into something supernatural when he decides that his student is possessed. Creepy and unexplainable occurrences drive him from the house but the seemingly innocent young woman draws him back with a powerful, seductive temptation. At the height of his ecstasy, Toby realizes that there is a paranormal connection between the women of the house and it may be too late to save himself from eternal slavery in a hellish underworld.

The film opens with a weird monologue about how the door to evil opens every 66 moon cycles and is allowed for 66 moments(?). And I am not sure how that fit into the film but apparently it does with a girls' birthday falling on 06-06.

Toby McClift (Peter Gadiot) grows up under the careful teachings of his father, a preacher who teaches Toby that "Killing evil is doing good" and that he must not love...ever. Meanwhile Toby believes that cowards miss out of life and of love as he has a rendezvous with Katy (Jytte-Merle Böhrnsen) in a cemetery. Things go horribly amiss as Toby sees a demon cart off his girl.

6 years later (about 66 lunar months?) Toby is released from a mental institution and takes a tutoring job at the Wallace manor and instructs a young girl Laura who looks just like Katy. There is also Lady Wallace (Jeanette Hain) who lives in the house with her consort Mortimer (Klaus Tange) who is the epitome of evil. Toby "knows" Laura must be Katy and wants to escape with her, but the odd events going on in the house as well as his weird dreams hinder his plans. Also Laura likes to play games.

The film would have made more sense if it was a simple witchcraft story and they left out the 66 lunar stuff and some aspect of Christianity never fully utilized. There are abstract scenes that are artistic dreams which caused me to scratch my head as Toby is also on meds. It is a film I would of enjoyed better if I wasn't trying to figure out what was going on.

This is more of a supernatural thriller/drama than a horror film.

Parental Guide: sex, nudity (Jytte-Merle Böhrnsen) No F-bombs that I recall.

I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I first started watching this film, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It am not going to give any spoilers, suffice it to say that it is artfully done, well acted and beautifully directed. There are a few scenes that cause you to tilt you head to one side in doggy fashion, but I think a re-watch will probably tell you what various symbolisms mean. IMHO, I think this was cynical take on love and naiveté. In spite of that negative nelly outlook, I enjoyed it immensely. Dark, fascinating, sexy and satisfying, It is a definite recommend for anyone looking for a little something beyond typical horror gore.

I had high hopes for this movie. The cinematography was beautiful and the concept seemed interesting. However, I was let down. One of the main reasons is that the sound quality is awful. I know this sounds odd but the way the characters deliver their lines and the undertone whispers are so hard to hear that I missed half the movie. When I watched it again with subtitles, it was easier to understand. Yet even though it was easier to understand, I still didn't love. The main male character really does not deliver his role well. He feels very off. And even with subtitles, the plot is still confusing.

Strange and twisted paranormal story of a young man destined to play a part in a centuries old dynasty involving the curse and blessing of immortality. Truthfully the tale had me confused at times, but entranced enough to continue watching. The acting is not bad, if at times the script is vague and unclear. They tell you just enough of the story so you think you know what is going, but always remain slightly uncertain. To give you my two pence, I took the couple seeking immortality as sorcerers after a fashion, seeking to use the young couple as their unwitting pawns in the consummation (literal and figurative) of a diabolic ritual to grant them continued immortality. I'm assuming the young woman was periodically possessed by the elder sorceress to fit her ends. Somewhere, true love had to fit in, as the young man had to actually love the young girl for the ritual to work. Look for no happy endings however, as the young man ends up as a spiritual prisoner, the girl disappears (?) and the evil sorcerers get away with their plan and their renewed youth. However, there hang enough loose ends and unfinished pieces of the puzzle that other interpretations are entirely possible. The effects are by and large well done, though not high budget. At times the action slips into the slightly comedic, but aims more for horrific melodrama than actual comedy, and by and large achieves it. Grant you this is not the height of supernatural horror cinema; but it's pleasant enough to call it an overlooked gem. It also has a bit of the Lovecraftian gothic about it, which I love and look for in films.

The Forbidden Girl is a German film with intriguing cinematography. The creepy old mansion, the beautifully detailed rooms, the carefully selected props, the lush costumes; all make for a film with some great horror genre ambience. Unfortunately, however, great films require intriguing storylines that get their hooks in you and don't let go. That's where this film falls apart.
I watched the entire movie and kept thinking that it would have made a beautiful music video for a Nine Inch Nails song, if condensed to four minutes. It just doesn't work as a feature film! If, like me, you're attracted to Gothic Horror, just set the film on mute and use it as a backdrop while you play some great classical, opera, or sinister rock music. And don't forget the absinthe!
