Incredibly entertaining over the top Euro-horror. It definitely has its cheesy moments, but it always manages to be compelling and original with a number of inspired gruesome set pieces right up to its explosive climax. A must for horror fans.
The whole thing looked promising but it mostly failed. Rather similar to other cheesy-gore movies from the 80s, notably from Lamberto Bava, Ruggero Deodato....however the film contains a few memorable / cult moments and a nice photography. The escalation of the supernatural is just too much to be taken seriously here.
