This is one weird tale, classier than one might think for most of the time, but the ending is sheerly delightfully trashy! Our story is about a woman who is distressed over her cheating Husband's demise. She moves into a strange boarding home that she happens to share with a sweet blind man. He is rather puzzled by her unusual lover as he often hears moans and her spicy activity yet he keeps hearing her call her Husband's name. Will he be able to figure out her secret? I think more than anything his is a really weird and grotesque drama with horrific elements, so if you like story driven films this should be right up your alley. For those who like horror if you are patient you should be more than rewarded too. I haven't seen a ton of Lamberto Bava films, but after seeing this one, I'll be seeing more.

Availability:  On DVD
