    The 1970s were a magical time for made-for-TV movies. Satanists abounded; foreigners were evil-detecting servants; and a cute German Shepard with its tongue hanging out was presumed to be terrifying.

    Fun but falls apart on reflection.

    Not a great Bava film, but a good one. While sometimes crossing from dangerous into ludicrous, the film maintains tension and a sense of peril throughout. A few scenes create the cringing sympathy of later films like "Last House on the Left". I haven't seen the English language cut, but the Italian is impressive for its ability to make you believe that you've witnessed offscreen horrors.

    Not a perfect movie, but one that feels important in founding the survival genre of horror.

    Sometimes you just want to see Danny Trejo murder Anthony Michael Hall.
