Richard (Gabriele Tinti) and Nora (Adriana Russo) drive to the country with their kids Georgia (Jessica Moore) and Maurice to pay a visit to Richard's aunt Martha, who has only recently been released from a mental institution, only to learn from her house's caretaker (Maurice Poli) that the good aunt is out ...

Auntie also doesn't get back the next day, while the house is getting a little spooky - especially when Richard starts remembering the suicide of his mother.

When Auntie doesn't show up on the third day either, Richard decides to pay a visit to the caretaker, only to find out that the caretaker actually doesn't even exist ... meanwhile back at the house, someone's brutally slaughtering Richard's family.

When Richard arrives back home, he finds his family dead, but finally meets aunt Martha, who promises him revenge for having put her into a mental institution - but before you know it, she has simply vanished like a ghost ...

Richard descends down into the house's cellar where he finds the corpse of aunt Martha, with her head brutally smashed in, and he finds the caretaker, who promises revenge on Richard - and ultimately the two men get into a fight which the caretaker seems to win when ... cut back to the family in the car, like in the beginning of the movie, but now they are all dead after a fatal carcrash ...


Rather gory but at the same time pointless shocker of the ghost story variety with an especially disappointing ending that leaves quite a few too many questions open. Still, if you are into 1980's Euro horror trash, you might not find this film entirely without entertainment value - if maybe for all the wrong reasons ...
