“A wonderfully dark supernatural affair, which takes takes visual cues from earlier Italian luminaries such as Argento and Bava. [It further] mixes with the world of ‘70s religious horror and the dark cosmic terror of H.P. Lovecraft to create something utterly spectacular.” — Scott Macdonald, EuroCultAV
“I realize now that director Mariano Baino had no interest in making use of a classical narrative structure to tell the story. This film gave me the impression that someone was able to record another person’s nightmare and turn it into a movie, with some editing work on the side.” — Francisco R., Letterboxd
