Cinzia Monreale is raped & beaten into a coma by the son of the village bigshot
& his friends. Donald O'Brien - as the village weirdo - gets the blame,
is thrown into prison &, once there, killed. But Monreale, still in
a coma, has telepathic abilities & thus is able to awake O'Brien
from the dead, having him kill her tormentors.
But somehow the walking
dead seems to enjoy his killing spree & does act out some revenge of
his own as well.
Only when he wants to kill Monreale's boyfriend (you
see, when still alive, O'Brien was secretly in love with Monreale) &
her young son steps in, she lets down her guard long enough for the
boyfriend to plug out her life-sustaining machines, killing her but
releasing O'Brien's corpse from her spell, letting him finally rest in peace.
Somehow, by the 90's the Italians by & large have
completely lost the ability to make these endearing horror
cheapies - & it's not that the plots got too crazy or the actors
more wooden, this was always the case at least since the late 70's,
& they did produce some great trash back then. It's more that they
completely lost faith in their own talents, & so instead of producing
something generic (& Joe D'Amato, though a man of some talent, was
never the most original filmmaker to begin with) this one is just a
horror-by-numbers-picture dull enough that it could as easily have been produced in the
US (actually, if you think this movie bears some semblance to Charles
Band's Crash - you are right).
Only in a dream-sequence in which a
fat guy runs through the woods while maniacally wielding an axe, do we
see a glimpse of genuine Italian pulp fiction, a glimpse of what could
have been. Unfortunately, that's not enough.
