Shadow is one of the better Italian horror films to have emerged over the past few years. Within the context of a genre that is now generally characterized by stilted acting, implausible dialogue and an over-indebtedness to past glories it scores points for being modern, well made and believable (if not realistic).
Blackwood is the kind of tasteful, competent ghost story which would fit in comfortably with the assorted productions being made by the revived Hammer Films.
Dark Touch is a kind of ghost story which isn’t really a ghost story, a poltergeist movie with elements of Carrie thrown in for good luck.
Volonté and Petri joined forces again for 1971’s The Working Class Goes to Heaven and, impressively, they managed to concoct something that was even more hysterical than Investigation of a Citizen above Suspicion.
