Cani Arrabbiati

Mario Bava Italy, 1974

Korial's rating of the film Rabid Dogs

Bava really knows how to build tension and to represent violence and claustrophobic situations. Technically is good. However, it is exploitative and uninspired on the narrative side. It does not try to be meaningful, nor characters have any depth. It is an endless series of violent acts which most of the times are justified only by their aesthetics and a pretentious search for the sensations they cause.
