Freda is rated as one of Italy's masters of previous generation occult horror/suspense. For me these examples do not wear all that well. One exception is Brunello Rondi's even more obscure witchcraft movie "Il Demonio" dazzlingly filmed with a sensational early lead role for Daliah Lavi and shot in awesome locations (there is a DVD, with subtitles; I found it difficult to get but worth the effort).

Even this last Freda-directed thriller, probably containing the culmination of his style, is now only partially effective. Nevertheless there is an intriguing plot classically set largely in a huge Old Dark House, with issues of haunting guilt besetting the occupants. All the hallmarks of thunder and lightning, frequent plunges into darkness etc are present and correct. Doomy Liszt piano music permeates. There's even some sex and nicely bared breasts. There's also the ghoulish bond between an ailing mother and a returning traumatised son (who witnessed his father's death and is now a movie actor).

Film personnel headed by their director also arrive during suspension of shooting. Soft-core screen icon Laura Gemser plays an actress and a friend of a (lesbian?) lady assistant. The shifty director uses his 'Peeping Tom' still camera, lusting after the actress.

Our tortured lead character's girlfriend one night has a satanic nightmare, finally being groped by giant hairy spider, rendered a bit laughable by the puppetry. I found this sequence too drawn out but pretty Silvia Dionisio as the unfortunate girl gives one of the few halfway decent performances (others, including I thought John Richardson as a standard creepy but plot-important manservant, resemble fugitives from Madame Tussaud's). Anita Strindberg as the Mrs Haversham-like mother is rather good however.

HASH(0x906d8558) out of 5 stars witchcraft tinged giallo mixture 28 Nov. 2008
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Rarovideo always does a excellent job of remastering their movies and they do that here on this one too. THis flick is a interesting giallo mixed with
witchcraft. It features the standard black gloved killer who takes out his victims. The killer is revealed at the end of the movie; just like any other giallo but the ending is even more shocking than usual. The special effects are from the early 80's and they still are effective. And the movie features a great black mass scene that is very eerie. The story is similiar to many other giallo thrillers with people stuck in a evil mansion as they are picked off, but there are straight horror elements here that make the flick stand out from many other giallo/mystery movies.
The performance of Anita strinberg in this movie is standout here and proves that she was a underrated actress. If you like giallos (Italian mystery slasher horror flicks) and low budget horror films with a interesting twist then you will enjoy this movie. It's on blu ray now too and that is a step up from the dvd I have.
