Review
Iโ€™m not a big Giallo fan, or really even much of an Italian horror fan, despite being well aware of how impactful our Italian friends have been on the genre over the years. That said itโ€™s just not my bread and butter. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie which just goes to show good horror doesnโ€™t always need to be complex.

Starring Ilenia Pastorelli, Asia Argento, and Andrea Gherpelli the movie explores themes of consequence and finding a family while a violent killer attacks a series of sex workers eventually leading to our main characters. Itโ€™s been done before, but even though this is a revisited topic it was shot beautifully in a way that successfully recreates all the nostalgia of classic slashers for modern times.

No complaints about any of the casting, and everything gets tied up nicely and neatly by the end.ย

Fun to watch if you are a Giallo fan looking for something that reminds you of the classics. Where so many try to recreate the feelings of 80โ€™s and 90โ€™s horror and all too often miss the mark this doesnโ€™t disappoint. That said it also fails to be anything original on its own.
