“Drink this and you will be free.”


When recovering from a car accident, where she lost her unborn child, the young Jane suffers from recurring nightmares. When she’s getting stalked by a blue eyed killer with a knife she seeks help both with her boyfriend and her new neighbor. The line between nightmare and reality is blurred. Her new neighbor gets her involved with a group of Satanists to cure her, but it’s…really not helping.


What a kaleidoscope of stylish filmmaking. The images are beautiful as Sergio Martino plays around with a creative mind and vitality. This is one of his best Gialli, and one of the best there is. The nightmarish landscape is perfect for the surreal setting and fiendish plot. The script is great, the direction is great, and I used an hour of browsing to re-listen the amazing score. And Edwige Fenech is lovely as always!
