People around Peter Crane begin dying in mysterious fashion. How is Playboy Peter involved in this? He begins having nightmares dealing with murder…His psychiatrist has no idea of what Peter is suffering from. Even the police are in danger as they start investigating the case. What is the secret of the “Magic Circle”?
Director Mario Siciliano, who also helmed a bunch of spaghetti Westerns and hardcore porno pictures, starts this intriguingly bizarre Spanish/Italian/Mexican horror thriller opus on a slow and spooky note, gradually developing an eerie and mysterious nightmarish oddball atmosphere that reaches a really intense and harrowing fever pitch in the gloriously off the wall final third. Stelvio Capriani’s groovy score neatly alternates between smooth funky lounge music and wonky flesh-crawling creepiness. Vicente Minaya’s crude, unpolished cinematography likewise adds considerably to the overall outré tone. Nice supporting performances by the lovely Pilar Velasquez as sweet, charming, fetching shrink Dr. Sarah Turner, Anthony Steffen as a hard-nosed police detective, Luis Latorre as Paul’s fellow party hearty rich pal Robert, and Daniela Giordano as beautiful blonde babe Tanya. An engrossing and often unsettling fright flick oddity.
