Critic Reviews for Shadow
Just when you're settled into thinking you're watching another survival horror, there's a massive and quite bold change in direction and all bets are off.
It is short, sharp and competently made but only narrowly avoids falling into the torture porn genre.
Zampaglione admirably maintains the mood of menace and makes his point about humanity's potential for evil without undue preachiness.
It cleverly weaves together nasty nightmares from both the Iraq occupation and World War II while constantly grossing us out. Although we never get very deeply involved.
It's like Deliverance turns into Hostel halfway through -- only not nearly as good as either of those films.
presents one of the creepiest, most grotesque-looking antagonists seen since Max Schreck embodied Count Orlock in Nosferatu (1922). And if that does not whet the appetite, there is a scene of gratuitous toad-licking too...
Audience Reviews for Shadow
Downright nightmare inducing. This movie started out rather benign, but after a half hour or so it makes a serious left turn. The character played by Nuot Arquint is...well...hideously awesome. I have no idea what part of hell he came from, but, I hope he crawled right back after making this movie. The ending was very Jacob's Ladder, but still a very interesting one all the same.
