Movie Reviews (1151-1200) (50 movies items)

" Lance Henriksen's intensity in this film as the head inquisitor is phenomenal and it is hard to take his eyes off him when obsesses on a beautiful woman or whips his sins away for God. It is minimally based upon a Edgar Allan Poe short story but it is actually rather good with some excellent dry black humor and a very beautiful leading actress. I love the Italian locations that give it atmosphere and a feel of realism that one don't get in a studio. Only the heroic lead is bland and boring and "
