|One minute fifty long seconds of opening credits.|
If there's one thing I know about my brother JPX it's that he is not very fond of late 60's/early 70's dubbed European horror movies with washed out colors, lengthy exposition and precious little violence. To an extent I disagree with his stubborn position. I feel he's doing himself a disservice by dismissing a specific time period. There are some excellent movies from that time. Unfortunately this is not one of them. Damn, is there anything more boring than watching a boring old movie by yourself?

There's the innkeeper, his unhappy wife, a colonel, a professor, an old biddy, and a few others whose unremarkable performances don't deserve any specific mention.
The poor dubbing (and lack of a subtitled Italian version) robs this film what little dignity it may have had. Perhaps in its original language it flows more like an atmospheric rainy day chiller but I don't know and don't care. I would rather do dishes than watch this movie again.

to the film.
