LLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
15 March 2018 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

This film won me over when a character says: "With radiation, I managed to stop a bee in mid-air and was able to control it." This unique sentence is uttered during a flashback narrated by a lady in a car being followed by a car being driven by no one. That's how good this one is.

You see, we find out what is happening via main character Lisa screaming at the top of her voice while driving insanely. She's going mad because her ex-husband scientist Brecht died in a fire in his laboratory. Lisa was bored and having an affair with Brecht's twin brother Germano. Brecht threw a wobbly at this and after trying to suffocate his assistant Erina with a plastic bag, ended up perishing in a lab fire, despite Germano's attempts at rescue. Oh, and Lisa could have save him but didn't. Now Lisa has hooked up with Brecht's assistant Lailo, seems to be having a huge meltdown, and there's a car with no one in it trying to kill her.

Lisa's doctor recommends that she goes back to the house where it all happened to purge herself of the guilt. "But what if my brain explodes?" Lisa asks, rather strangely, but still heads off there with sexy assistant Katia in tow. Turns out Germano is now a very angry, wheelchair bound madman, and Erina has now turned mute due to the trauma of having a bag over her head. This is where things start getting weird.

Lisa starts seeing the floating head of Brecht, or his charred body walking about, while Lailo wanders around outside and Germano turns up now and again to ram him with his wheelchair. Both Germano and Lisa do a lot of screaming but at some point Lisa, Erina and Katia all end up naked in Lisa's room where Erina and Katia have a cat fight. Germano makes Lisa chew on his burned fingers and at one point he uses a huge pair of tongs to grab Erina so he can whip her. Also, after being drawn in by a disembodied voice laughing, a net falls on Lisa and she's attacked by eels. You heard me.

This disjointed pile of madness does eventually lead somewhere with some sort of explanation (but not how Katia had a phone conversation with Lailo when he was walking around outside), and there's a nasty neck slashing in store for one of the characters too. The whole thing seems to be stitched together, with scenes and characters jumping all over the place, the acting way over the top (including Germano screaming people's names at the top of his voice), like an attempt at a gothic horror with a giallo vibe. I don't know what it was quite about, but it sure was funny!
