La setta

Michele Soavi Itália, 1991

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Sect

If you thought Argento reached peak-insanity with Phenomena & its razor-blade wielding chimp & crime-solving insects, strap-in for this Argento-penned, Soavi-directed indulgence. While the plot suffers too many longueurs & too many scenes that don't make sense, the wild imagination on display more than compensates, with garish imagery (especially during an infamous dream-sequence) that has to be seen to be believed.
