Aenigma

Rating:

Something must have happened to Lucio Fulci around 1982-83. That seems to be about the time he decided his movies needed to be filled with annoying teenagers and pastel sweatshirts. These mid to late 80's films are just dripping with cheese and bad narrative decisions. Aenigma contains an aerobicizing scene, awkward zoom-ins on dorm room movie posters (Top Gun and Rocky IV) and a "retarded" cleaning woman who smells of garlic. The only thing creepy about this horror film is our hero–a middle-aged doctor who dates the young college girls he is treating. Nonetheless, this was a fun film to watch and laugh at and I was never bored.
