Movie Reviews

Nothing Special
D. R. Clarke | 08/15/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Well, not quite as bad as I had been led to believe, but not good either. Fulci plays himself as a director haunted by violent scenes from his own (and other people's) films, and ends up going to a psychiatrist for help. As it turns out however, the psychiatrist is a real life psycho, trapped in a loveless marriage, and uses Fulci's problems as an excuse to go on a murder spree with the intention of ultimately framing Fulci himself for the crimes. While Fulci does a reasonable job playing himself, the psychiatrist provides one of the worst performances I have seen on screen for many a year, being alternately wooden or over the top hammy. But I guess the primary reason people watch this film is because of the much hyped gore sequences. Well, while it is true there are numerous such scenes in the film, I am afraid much of the gore is of very poor quality - with dodgy rubber prosthetics and cheap looking severed heads. I am afraid I felt myself nodding off between the scenes of carnage, which is surely not a good sign."
