Some really nice visuals... the baddie looked great, and the sets seen whilst the three were tied down looked really good. But the audio was too loud and busy, and the plot didn't know where it was going. Finally finished off with a cop-out ending.

Yeah enjoyed it but I wanted to know more about why the killer was doing what he was doing, but then it didn't need explaining because of that ending, which was a cop out and a shame..and yeah the audio was bit too loud through most movies on that day apart from THE HORSEMAN...

I'm sorry but I really didn't think much of this one at all. It was just rubbish! I really don't see how this film is supposed to be responsible for bringing back Italian horror! Argento? Fucli? Bava? Deodato? The film's closer to a Uwe Boll film (okay maybe not THAT bad ;) )

Didnt really do much for me I'm afraid - competent movie but ultimately didnt grab me.

I really enjoyed this one, the visuals were pretty stunning throughout. For me this has been the most suspenseful, and the best movie so far. I do think the ending was well and truly 'over-egged', but an interesting concept which perhaps just needs a bit of cutting.

I found Shadow amazing! Finally something fresh! I also loved the ending that makes you think about atrocity of war. Italy gets back!!

Absolutely stunning!!!!! Painful and creepy! Zampagilone is (by far) the future of italian horror. Have u seen Argento's Giallo?

Thought this one was all over the place, and that most of the ideas in it didn't seem to be particularly original or very well executed. The ending was useless, just a lazy cop-out really ... big disappointment given the build-up.

I thought this was dreadful, one of the worst out of the films I saw this year. The ending made it even more dire. Such a cop out.

Wasnt this just a retread of jacobs ladder?

Not a good film, felt like the director was just looking to find something to wrap his torture porn up in, but instead of something original he took the premise of another movie.

Very pretty to watch, but in parts felt like an extended NIN video. The guy was nice though when we spoke to him.

Hm ok - so thats what Crystal Maze guy has been up to lately. This one really didnt grab me as I can never really understand those movies where someone goes off to a desolate place (hmmm mountain biking in some foggy ass-end of Europe) and then go out of their way to piss-off some nutters in a big-ass truck with big ass-guns and a satan-hound. Big cop-out of an ending.

Future of Italian Horror? Oh I do hope not.

As someone already mentioned I think someone has seen Jacobs Ladder.

Not very impressed at all with this.

Have to say this was the first film of the weekend that I wasn't particularly impressed with. I never get on with movies which ultimately take place in a non-existent or fictional reality and, like Jacob's Ladder (which is undeniably creepy) or 1408 (which isn't), once it's established where the bulk of the movie is taking place, I lost some interest. It's good looking, but I don't know that it's the future of Italian horror.
