Review from UK Amazon: Psychedelic
This film is normally grouped together with other Italian based films under the banner of Giallo. Which having now seen this film, does it a serious disservice. Many of the Giallo films feel like an excuse for naked writhing ladies, stalking killers, and psychedelic soundtracks. While not always a bad thing(!) the plot and acting tends to come way down in the pecking order.
Not so with this film. Visually this movie is stunning. Lots of superbly thought out hallucination scenes show the main character’s decent into possible madness with really quite jarring effect. Yes there’s the naked beauties and 60′s soundtrack, but neither of these feel like they’ve been shoehorned in for the sake of it. In fact the psychedelic party at the start of the film only adds to the uneasiness of everything.
The script has more twists and turns than a basket full of snakes. You’re left wondering what’s going to happen right up to the very end of this film.
Forget about movie genres and pigeon holes, this film is quite simply just a cracking ride from start to finish.
