Considering this has been titled as a sequel to "Beyond The Door" at one point, it's actually better or at least much classier than the original. It's quite different in either event. It's about a woman named Dora (Bava's love interest Daria Nicolodi) who happens to have problems. Her husband died under mysterious circumstances, and was a drug addict who mistreated her so she's bound to have issues right? After she gets out of the mental hospital she starts to have issues with her son who is acting downright bizarre! Her new husband doesn't seem to making anything easier on her either. It's hard to tell who is responsible for what for a little while but it all comes together in a neat little nifty package. A pretty cool tale artfully shot so that just about anyone should enjoy this, even if it's not his best.

Availability:  On DVD
