Horrible is Italy's answer to Silent Rage, only no Chuck Norris to save the day. In some places it's known as Anthropophagus 2, but aside from having the same star and director, it's not a sequel.
It's about a silent hulking killer(George Eastman of course!) running about making things terribly unpleasant for those he crosses. He's a bitch to kill since he's able to heal himself quickly. Some shady science experiment(overseen by a priest!) has made it possible for Eastman's blood to coagulate very fast, but it's also made him crazier. The only way to kill the brute is to destroy his brain. I'm no doctor and don't claim to have a bunch of medical knowledge, but simply having blood that coagulates quickly wouldn't just make you downright invincible, would it?
Anyway, Eastman is pursued by the priest who had a hand in the experiment. After injuring himself, being rushed to the hospital and escaping, Eastman goes wandering around and killing folks. The streets are nearly deserted as everyone is indoors glued to the screen for the big Rams/Steelers game.
Eastman ends up at the home where he was injured in the beginning of the film. From there, D'Amato seems very influenced by Carpenter's Halloween, as there are many scenes that feel inspired by that movie. Hell, there's even a young "Tommy Doyle"- type kid who is trying to warn everybody about the presence of the "Boogeyman", but no one believes him.
All in all, not a bad Italian horror film. Like Anthropophagus, it's slower paced. It's also not as gory as you'd believe it'd be. It has a few moments, but most of D'Amato's other horror films are gorier(except maybe Porno Holocaust, but then again, gore wasn't really the focus for that film).
Not the best work he's done, but certainly a must for D'Amato fans and Italian horror fans in general.
The MYA DVD is bare bones and featureless, but a good job is done in restoration. It's one of those deals where it was pieced together from different sources, so there are a few scenes that have a very washed out, grainly look to them, but thankfully there aren't all that many.
