BLOODY PSYCHO, bloody stupid
There's no need for you to watch BLOODY PSYCHO.
Really, there isn't.
Unless you're craving for some obscure, shot-on-16mm, incoherent, unambitious gore film.
Plot in one sentence:
A psychic doctor comes to a castle where a series of murders begins.
After an atmospheric opening BLOODY PSYCHO begins to fall apart.
The plot is hard to make sense of, and is nothing original.
Peter Hintz underacting as Dr. Vogler made a better impression than he did while going way over the top in Fulci's HOUSE OF CLOCKS.
PLUSES: The low-budget yet atmospheric score tells an entirely different story from the film it accompanies. It elevates the proceedings above dreary at times.
MINUSES: Editing is rudimentary.
Some unbearably long takes are left in.
An occasional special effect is impressive, but the majority of them is very basic.
Only very keen enthusiasts will be able to scrape some redeeming value out of this incomprehensible mess.
BLOODY PSYCHO doesn't care for being understandable.
It exists only to deliver the obligatory quota of cheap gore modestly sprinkled across the ninety minutes of a poor supernatural film.
If you can help it, avoid BLOODY PSYCHO.
But, if you're still reading at this point, you'll probably get suckered into viewing it.
