Bad Inclination (2003)

Very sad attempt at renewing the Giallo over 30 years after the height of its success. Several women that have fallen out of the lime light find an opportunity to renew their fame by pretending to fall victim to a ruthless serial killer, but how far will they go to be famous again? There is very little to like here, with my biggest complaints being the awful dubbing, amateur editing and direction, and.. well.. the acting, dialogue, plot, and settings. Other than that, its great. Florinda Bolkan does return as a major player, which is a nice throwback to the golden age of Italian horror, but even she doesnt recapture the strength of her previous roles. The one thing that the film does offer is some graphic and brutal slashings that are not over the top and look believable and forceful. Most of the characters are just so friggin annoying you cant rightfully get through a scene without wincing or rolling your eyes. For the hardcore Gialli fan, this may be worth checking out, once, after you have seen every other film in the sub-genre, but for the average horror fan this is an absolute pass.

Rating: 4/10.
