BELL FROM HELL (1973) **

A guy gets out of an insane asylum and goes to live with his aunt.  He gets a job in a slaughterhouse (Can you imagine his resume musta looked like?) and is also a special effects enthusiast.  In the film’s best scene, he torments his aunt by making her think he rips his eyes out (kinda like a cross between Corey Feldman in Friday the 13th Part IV and Bud Cort in Harold and Maude).  He then sets out to kill the people responsible for sending him away to the institution and stealing his inheritance.  There are some atmospheric moments but this is mostly a dull attempt at a modern gothic style horror film. Director Claudio Guerin Hill actually fell from the bell tower and died on the last day of shooting!
