"L'Arcano Incantatore" ("Arcane Sorcerer" to we Engllish speakers) is an intriguing Italian horror film that deserves far more attention. Edgar Wright called this the "Barry Lyndon" of horror films and I think it's an apt description. Like Kubrick's masterpiece, it features impeccably composed visuals and well-researched historical details. It's also about an exiled man searching for a meaningful path. In this case, however, that path comes fraught with spirits, sorcery, possessions, and blood oaths. I was surprised by how involved the plot becomes, sneakily introducing plot twists just when I thought I had things pegged. From a technical standpoint, it's impressive what they were able to accomplish on what had to have been a small budget. The locations are few but they are attentively detailed and exude a candle-lit creepiness. Overall, I really only have good things to say about "Arcane Sorcerer". It's a really effective film that deserves to be more widely seen (no RT critic reviews?!). Anyone with a taste for atmospheric horror or films dealing with the occult should definitely seek out "Arcane Sorcerer".
