and sadistic diabolical twists fill this gothic masterpiece from famed
Italian filmmaker Pupi Avati. Mr Avati turned to drama and 'relationship
pictures' (like ZEDAR and STORY OF BOYS AND GIRLS) after this film. He
has often said that this project was "too real" and "scared
him into too many sleepless nights" to continue in this genre.
A remote Italian village harbors unspeakable secrets as a young artist,
Stefano, discovers when he arrives to restore a decaying fresco inside
a local church. He suddenly finds himself in the midst of a terrifying
chain of murders which all seem related to related to the sado-masochistic
painting on the church's wall.
