On a snowy eve, Little Holly's sister and father are killed by her frantic mother. Years later, Holly is married, lonely, and her life is soon about take a turn for the ultra weird, when she visits "Umbrella of Love and Mind".
Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
I saw the premise of the film and was interested. Adding to my interest was the fact that the film was foreign. I was curious what a Turkish horror movie would look like.
The movie starts out with an amazing film score that sets this tone for an early 80s euro giallo style.
It takes a while for the Horror to begin as we watch a group of cops go through some strange events before the real deal goes down.
And when the horror sneaks up to ya, it's very freaky and deranged, almost torture porn like. It made me squirm in my seat.
I must admit that overall I thought the movie was far too corny. It could be the culture gap, or it could be the Tarantino like built up to the horror with a lot of dialog, that may have been more interesting in the native language.
Can't really say that I like it all that much, though it made me uncomfortable, it was not in a scary way.
