lady goes on a cursed holiday with her boyfriend losing themselves in
the backwoods while her childhood friend recluses herself in her house
going insane, alternating between babbling curses at her friend which
seem to become reality, and remembering childhood traumas and scary stories
about witches. There's a witch that burns cats and enslaves or abuses
men, some of which she throws down a well, a mentally-challenged pig-girl
who humps mud, random men on horseback with swords, random skulls in a
dovecote, random graves, a lady lusting after a stinking horseman, etc.
The time of day and location have no meaning here."
quote from The Worldwide Celluloid
a film that exists in a world very similar to that of Jose Ramon Larraz
(especially his foreboding thrillers like WHIRLPOOL
DIE. It all plays out like a nightmare
or an uncomfortable
drugtrip where the pieces are all there but they don't seem to match.
While this movie found success in Europe and South America, it failed
to spark in the United States where an X Rating hampered any major distribution.
