Sergio is really great at making low budget yet some how captivating Italian films and this is no exception. This one is a giallo based upon the whole "Rosemary's Baby" thing although this is a little crazier. This one has a beautiful woman who is recovering after losing her unborn child in a car accident. She's been having terrible nightmares that are not only bizarre but bloody! Her boyfriend keeps feeding her "vitamins" which he believes will cure her horrifying dreams. Soon she meets a neighbor she becomes friendly with who seems to have another answer for her problem...a black mass! It's pretty darned interesting and a bit confusing but it all comes together neatly in the end. It's maybe not the best film ever for it's not entirely original but this should definitely be of interest to many regardless.
