Movie Info

Strange things are going on in a beautiful and decadent Venetian villa. A young mother (BLUEBEARD’s Nathalie Delon) is horrified to discover that the imaginary friend of her son (Alessandro Poggi) is the second child she lost during her last pregnancy. Haunted by guilt, plagued by freak accidents and disbelieved by her husband (DANGER DIABOLIK’S John Phillip Law), she turns for help to a famous psychiatrist (BARON BLOOD’s Joseph Cotten)… only to learn that the ghost of her dead child is a very naughty boy. Based on Henry James’ THE TURN OF THE SCREW and in the tradition of Nicolas Roeg’s DON’T LOOK NOW and Mario Bava’s SHOCK, this long-lost Italo-Gothic classic was directed by the late Marcello Aliprandi and shot in the breathtaking Villa Condulmer in Mogliano, Veneto. Painstakingly restored from the original vault negatives and available uncut for the first time in the USA, this subtle, disturbing scarefeast is driven by a sensual score from maestro Pino Donaggio (DRESSED TO KILL, THE HOWLING). And for the first time ever, cinematographer Claudio Cirillo (Ettore Scola’s WE ALL LOVED EACH OTHER SO MUCH) has granted an exclusive interview, discussing the making of this ghostly gem.

½

There was a moment toward the end where I got the chills, thinking this movie was actually going somewhere, before it dropped back to the garbled mess that was its plot. Basically a giallo without the cool stuff.
