    I simply can't comprehend the fact it took more than 20 years to release this Mario Bava masterpiece of suspense and thrill. Extreme, vulgar, claustrophobic, unnerving with great camera work and strong performances this is one mad motion picture. It will bite you to the bone. Additional credits to Stelvio Cipriani, who composed a thrilling high-octane score. Since there are different cuts of the movie, I strongly suggest you to stay away from Lamberto Bava's version and look for the original director's cut.

    It is wonderfully shot with astonishingly good sequences,…

Everything works great. This is what World War Z should and could have been. Sure the plot of the film is not original, because yet…

    Surreal, absurd and darkly comic. One of the best zombie movies I have ever seen, and currently the best Dylan Dog film.
    I actually own the comic book this movie is based on. It is Dylan Dog Special #12, titled Crni UΕΎas (on Bosnian), which would translate to Black Horror, or the original title Orrore Nero.
