What is it about this film that Tscherkassky found so fascinating that he made two films based on it? Ghost rape? Sure, it's very weird that an actress of Hershey's caliber would be in this piece of crap, but often in Hollywood you take what you can get. I do not judge her. I love her. I didn't like to see her get raped. Ghosts are bad.
RIP G. ROMERO (Enfin vu kekparsurleweb) Ne pouvant plus tenir, me voilà visionnant ce film de possession aussi méconnu qu'intriguant! Et j'ai du mal à comprendre pqoi il n'est pas devenu un classique (s'est-il perdu dans la production pléthorique des 80s?). S. Furie sait instiller une tension permanente, bien aidé par une excellente actrice principale; le tout culmine dans un final halluciné, "à la Argento". A voir!
The first act was great (although the lightning things looks kindda silly), built with such staccato pacing that makes the movie seemed to know how to do its nuance. The psychiatrist act was kindda draggy and letdown compared to the opening, but still managed to be interesting. But as soon as the movie turned to be ghosthunter-parapsychological things, the epic dullness exploded and it was a total fail to me.
This film wastes no time and dives straight in to full poltergeist action. This is perhaps it's first downfall though as the pacing leaves a lot to be desired. The score alternates between being headache inducing to classic creepy 80's horror. The quality of acting varies and the script could have used a re-write. Despite these short-comings, this is one nasty nasty horror film with some genuinely creepy moments...
