Amazing gorehound delight...
This is the first movie directed by Olaf Ittenbach, and it is definitely a gorehound treasure. The story revolves around a mirror in a chained up chest in an attic, that when placed on the wall, opens up a can of ghoulish gore about as graphic as any gore movie I have ever seen. I just loved it. Yes, it's a low-budget straight to video film, but this is done extremely well, with gore effects that are mind-blowing. Olaf may have gotten a little inspiration from EVIL DEAD on this one, but he maintains an interesting story, good characters, and effects that are amazing, and even a decent soundtrack. This is splatter film making at its low-budget best, and I can't wait to watch the other Olaf movies I have now, and a couple still to come. I'm very impressed with his gore effects, it reminds me of the good old days back in the eighties when these gore movies were all over the place, but this one kicks major ass compared to most of those. This is definitely a gorehound delight.
