Adriana (Kendra Carelli) is a ballerina at Ms Valli's (Caroline Williams) ballet school who's about to have her breakthrough, but lately she's suffering from anxiety attacks, which is why she has of late she is recieving treatment from psychiatrist Dr Cassinelli (Debbie Rochon), who tries an experimental drug to make her feel better - but it seems that drug only enhances her disturbing dreams. And then by the by the other girls of the ballet school are found dead, which of course is doing nothing good to Adriana's condition. Dr Cassinelli is mighty concerned, and can you blame her, and so is Berna (Katie Carpenter), Adriana's best friend. But when Berna comes to check up on Adriana one day, she has no idea what she gets herself into ...

 

The ballet background of this film might immediately remind you of Suspiria (the original, the remake wasn't even out when this was made), and if so you aren't so far of, as this film, while the synopsis might read like a slasher, actually feels a love letter to classic giallo, with all the genre elements firmly in place, from the masked killer to the inventive murders, from the expert use of music to an emphasis on beautiful aesthetics, from the slightly over-convoluted plot to the logical if simplified use of psychology as the film's catalyst ... and the whole thing works, as it doesn't try too hard to just be an hommage but tells an engaging story that's enjoyable for both genre fans and those who have never seen a giallo, thanks to a very stylish directorial effort, a steady pace to move things along, and a top notch cast playing a fleshed out set of characters. A film that horror fans are sure to love, but it will probably also speak to people beyond that reach.
