To finish his latest shocking horror epic, the director Santini has called upon Europe's most acclaimed sound designer of the '70s, Gilderoy (Toby Jones), whom it falls upon to complete the spell Santini aims for – but the problem with a good spell is that it continues radiating outward, affecting more and more. Soon enough, our designer teeters on the brink of madness in the world of Italian horror and gialli in this vivid and experimental shocker.
A clever, elliptical, slightly bizarre and altogether transfixing psychological thriller. —Kyle Smith, New York Post
