Trivia

2011 Guide Analysis: "Based on the Italian comic by Tiziano Sclavi, this $20 million independently produced horror/action film was shot early 2009 and finished a year ago. A March 18th Italian release is scheduled which means a U.S. release is likely being setup for around the same time.

Adapted by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, the project comes from director Kevin Munroe and marks his second feature after the lacklustre "TMNT" which attempted to revive the Turtles franchise and instead essentially buried it. The cast is decent and Routh is usually pretty good if a bit stiff at times.

First footage for this came from an Italian promotional trailer and looked disappointingly cheap, almost Syfy telemovie in filming style. Part of that is due to the toning down of the rather gory comic to a PG-13 film which has worn down much of the edge, leaving behind only a bland "Buffy" ripoff.

Screened at the AFM this year, a review at Dread Central gave it a 2/5 and that's a site predisposed to like this kind of movie. It's still early though, but the production's backers have some way to go if they hope this will make a splash outside the countries where the comic has an in-built fanbase."
