Dario Argento directs Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasance and Dario Nicolodi in this supernatural horror where a sleepwalking girl with a psychic connection to insects stalks a slasher.
As mad as a box of frog. There is so much camp weirdness here that to list any of the more ridiculous developments would be to spoil the fun. The first hour is floaty atmosphere and icky strangeness. The last 30 minutes are nightmare fuel of the most depraved kind. You can look for logic or have a blast. You can’t do both. Probably would be awful without the star value Connelly and Pleasance imbue it all with by their reputations and sincere performances.
