Aenigma (1987)

2.5 out of 5

Fans of the horror period work of Lucio Fulci coming to Aenigma for the first time would probably do so with the expectation of at least some gore. However, it is fair to say that there is little of the famous Lucio appetite for excess on display here. There is some nastiness in this homage to Carrie and Patrick, but not as much as on other occasions. Instead, what we get, are some rather inventive, though oft derided, death scenes. Snails, Lucio? Really?
