  1. Thanks. I have been curious about this flick.

  2. Many of these Italian horror films from back in the day actually did really interesting things.

    …And bless them for it.

  3. I love this movie, it really did genuinely scare the crap out of me when I first saw it and even then whenever I re-watch this movie again. But dear god, Bob…just….even if you were a fan of the movie Bob’s whiny voice was so damn annoying! DX

    Great review Cinema Snob

  4. I’d have a hard time not laughing through this movie.

    I can’t believe the film makers can’t tell the difference between a curious George and a regular toy Monkey!

    Hm, strange. The theme music here reminds me of the riff in Muse’s “In Your World.”

    Then again, that song was first released in 2001, and this movie came out in 1981. But in Muse’s defense, they say it was inspired by Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

    Great review as always, Brad!

  7. That boy’s voice. It’s like it’s straight out of an old dubbed kaiju film.

  8. I guess I’d have to watch the movie, because I’m trying to figure out what Bob did that was so annoying outside of his acting like a typical kid. Only thing I found annoying was that awful dub voice over.

  9. This movie’s biggest problem? Not enough Bob…being curb stomped and set on fire, all while being raped by a pitbull.

  10. Dear Lord am I glad I’m Italian and I don’t have to hear that horrific ‘kid’ voice. Seriously, WTF?

  11. Goddamit Bob!

  12. Bob should know better than to explore creepy basements!

  13. That description still gives me the chills.

  14. Professor von SCIENCE!!!

    WTF? This movie leaves me with so many questions. Inane, stupid questions that bad plot holes leave in their wake. And wtf was with that quote on the end? Is it just to point out how annoying Bob is?

  15. I tell you, back in the day the BBFC were the biggest crowd pleasing stuffed shirts you’d ever find. Recently they have got their act together and olny ban films like… The Human Centipede Part 2 where films like One Direction: This Is Us don’t!

    The real problem today though is the BFI, British Film Institute… They don’t actually promote British films. Its just a name, they put all their advertising into whatever Hollywood is peddling

    But again, its nice to see bits of a film I would never ever get the chance to see haha

  16. only thing better than Fiddle Faddle is Screaming Yellow Zonkers

  17. 5/10 not enough corpse on human action.
