Salvum me de Inferno liberabis: Shadow (2009)
Starring: Jake Muxworthy, Karina Testa and Nuot Arquint
While watching this modern Italian horror flick, I was wondering if I'm going to be disappointed; the look of the DVD cover already got to me doubting as it's boring and cheap, but I learned never to judge a book by its cover and went on with it anyway.
Soon, a cat-and-mouse chase breaks out as the hunters try to kill the couple only to get into an accident on the road. David and the two hunters survives this, but find themselves at the mercy of a strange thin man with a fascination for torture and Nazi propagandas.
I can understand why a lot of people overlook this. It's very unoriginal with a silly plot twist, but I personally find it practically decent and watchable. A bit classy, psychological and even allegorical, Shadow is an underrated triumph that deserved a little more attention.
