2.0 out of 5 stars The Devil lies in the lack of detail 13 Jan 2013
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The DVD starts by thanking me as by purchasing it I am supporting the UK film industry, odd as it is an Italian movie and was filmed in Italy but thanks anyway.
Whoever wrote the blurb on the back of the DVD should have watched the film first.
It says ... when 6 friends on holiday visit a seemingly peaceful manor house and befriend a friendly priest in an adjoining church they learn of a local legend warning of a dangerous immortal spirit. Intrigued, they hold a séance to summon the spirit .... etc.
Six friends do stop at an abandoned building for a 4 day stay and meet the priest when they arrive; the visit was planned by the pregnant architect Sarah who is looking at helping the church to restore a 16th Century monastery. That same night they hold a séance, despite no previous mention of any supernatural history, the spirit asks them to "Free me from Hell". I've watched the start 4 times now to see if I've missed the part where they learn there is a spirit there, maybe it is in the original Italian version but not here.
Still once the spirit makes itself known things start to happen and they move away from talking about God v Aliens and banal sexual comments and into the tried and tested standard hand-held camera movie fare of dark corridors illuminated by torches, characters stood alone in corners, strange noises, doors banging and lots of shaking. Enter the Priest and just when you think it can't get more confusing it does to the nth degree.
It goes off at so many tangents I kept rewinding to see if I had missed something, I don't think I did but the last 15 minutes or so almost seems like you are watching the end of another movie that had been edited on by mistake.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT WANTS SOMETHING 28 April 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A group of six friends take a vacation to film an isolated 16th century monastery build upon an ancient Roman pagan site. There is still a priest (Giovanni Guidelli) who lives there. The six people consists of George (Roberto Zibetti) a man with an annoying accent. He believes in ancient astronauts which irks the heck out of Sarah (Manuela Parodi) who is expecting. She has numerous issues with Andrew (Marco Quaglia) the father who she believes secretly doesn't want the child. Claudia (Jennifer Mischiati) is our token eye candy along with her boy friend and atheist Alex (Marco Vannini Gandolfi) who does not believe in spooks. Mark (Aran Bertetto) spends much of his time behind the camera of our found footage film.

The beginning part was interesting and I was getting into the film as there was a number of diverse discussions going on plus weird things happening during the seance/Ouija board experiments. I was most impressed with the rapid time in which "the spirit" responded, unlike its American counterparts, even when built upon ancient Native-American burial grounds. Most likely their Ouija board was using modern space age graphene receptors. The spirit could understand English and then would spell out answers in Latin. At this point I was loving the film. I couldn't figure out why the hate. Then it happened about midway through...

The exorcism scene had me in tears. It was the funniest exorcism since "Repossessed." The acting was bad as our victim gnarled his face, drooled, and spoke in unintelligible Latin palindromes. After this, film went down hill with a major WTF scene with a bad prop and really unnecessary plot/shock point that in actuality didn't work well. In fact the whole second half needed to be tightened up.

Several issues with this film. The blurb (as pointed out rightly by other viewers) was almost about a different film. The seance is almost random and character development is lacking to the extent of "hang on so which one is he again?" leading to a slightly confused plot. Hell even the title is mismatched as the translation of Latin was later amended to one which made more sense - yet differs from the film title. A rich mythological history that could be exploited to much more terrifying potential is pretty much limited to a painting of an angel. This depiction of power would also help to explain the half hearted attempt to portray multiple possessions of different characters, which is also only briefly touched upon. I loved the tunnel within a tunnel within a crypt as this kind of architecture isn't uncommon for old religious buildings, however the climax of the mysterious device is cut short and seemingly forgotten about as it makes sweet FA difference to the plot that follows. The creeper following the two surviving characters was also interesting as there is no clue as to the hows whys and wherefores of this ending.

Now for what I enjoyed: The location (albeit somewhat stereotypical) is creepy as hell and makes for perfect acoustics. You really do buy into the horror of hearing this being prowling, but not being able to really get an idea of location. And then trying to figure out whether that was scarier or the silence of not hearing it at all.I'm still undecided. Found footage was used pretty effectively and real limitations of light certainly added to the ambiance.

In short: this seems like one of those group projects where everyone has good ideas but doesn't really communicate and then whacks off a slideshow with one slide per person and wonders why it doesn't work. A little more communication and to be honest basic planning could have made this film much better than the end result.
