Produced by Dario Argento, the Italian horror maestro's creative input is all over this disposable barnstormer even though directed by his good friend Lamberto Bava, son of genre genius Mario.
The Purple Rose of Cairo
The Evil Dead
in a lightning paced gore-fest in which a Berlin cinema audience at a fright flick undergo gruesome transformations when a demonic force is unleashed on screen. Trapped in the auditorium, the exits mysterious sealed off, they face grisly deaths, baroque spectacle, shock twists, a shattering Heavy Metal soundtrack and visual references to both Argento and Bava's back catalogue in a splatterific statement about the relationship between cinematic violence and its core audience. The double-fiction element allows free rein to delve into the fanboy collective conscious and mine every wonderfully nasty fear for all its worth in an exploitation classic that proved the pinnacle of Argento and Bava's working relationship.
The audience at a screening of a horror film face a fight for their lives when one of them mutates into a hideous monster and attacks those around her. Many of her victims mutate into yet more ferocious creatures, leaving the handful of survivors battling to get out of the cinema with their lives. Horror, with Urbano Barberini and Natasha Hovey.
