Filmed in 1972 about several murders of young boys in a small remote village. Showing the first part of the killer is of course his hands, poking needles into what seem like voodoo dolls of certain kids with horrifying music and faint screaming of each child in the background. That scene sets the grounds for an interesting and most violent near future. Lucio Fulci has this marvelous way of setting... read more

"9.6. DVD Fulci tuo giallon pois kaupungeista maaseudulle, joka muistuttaa brittikylmäilyä. Tämän lisäksi totuttua monisyisempi yhteiskunnallisuudessaan. Sisältö sekä kuvastohan ovat kauhistuttavia, mutta näyttää jälleen upealta. Heittää sekaan niin paljon punasilakoita, käänteitä, hahmoja ja maisemia, että uusintakatselusta on varmasti hyötyä."

" Lucio Fulci did better giallos than pure horror movies as they went too much over-the-top and brutal in my eyes. This is an excellent who-dunnit that have several perverse murder suspects that can have killed children in a small Italian village. Acting is also good and it has a good revelation and use of a Donald Duck mask making this a movie that Disney will never approve of. Could this be the director's masterpiece worthy of praise even in art circles? I think so. "

"First viewing - July 23rd Giallo Fest I actually tried watching this a few years back but quickly realized I wasn't in the mood for it. Fortunately after two nights spent with other Giallo films I was more open to it this time around. I appreciated the ways it worked to throw off the audience from who the killer is, and for most of the movie it kept me guessing. So the story side of things works really well, though it's possibly a little too long. Now whether it's due to the dubbing or just the"

"I expected to like this more than I did, since I'm a big fan of Fulci's films, and this is supposed to be one of the better ones. It's pretty tame gore wise, compared to a lot of his other films, but the ending was probably the high point of the film for me. "
