“You will pay! In pain. In pain.”
When Margareth is let out after a short prison sentence she’s getting room 2A in a boarding house, owned by an old widow. She’s starting to hallucinate, feeling that a bunch of people is abusing her. She teams up with a guy who’s had her sister living in the same place before she allegedly committed suicide. Together they’re about to find out the shocking truth.
A little drugged out piece of an Italian thriller. It jumps away in a staccato kind of way. Dropping out of the main characters story to start another angle. Not with the greatest of luck. But there’s enough to keep you interested; Snake attacks, red-clad torturers and nude women. But this could have been a lot better. A mediocre attempt of whatever it’s trying to be… It’s worth noticing that a much longer version is out on youtube. Not quite sure if that would do the movie more good.
