Meet blind daughter and her folks, they inherit a mysterious castle in Italy. What is going on in the castle in private? Is something or someone terrorizing them? It's actually not quite as mysterious as it sounds, no worries I shan't ruin it for you but let's just say the answer is disappointing. We do get a rather atmospheric piece, but there is some gore, and few scares. This is definitely a B-movie, and it's ridiculous in may places, but I suppose it's not without it's moments. At the end of the day it's not a bad horror film but for an H.P. Lovecraft adaptation from Stuart Gordon I guess I just expected more.
