Film Review: A Whisper in the Dark (1976)

I gotta tell you, I love slow-burning, mysterious ghost stories. The psychological impact of such films leave me wanting more, so I eagerly seek out titles I’m unfamiliar with. Such was the case with A Whisper in the Dark (aka Un Sussurro nel Buio), a 1976 production from Italy.

In this film, a wealthy family is vexed by the existence of Luca, the imaginary friend of their 12-year-old son Martino. Mother Camilla is affected the most, so much that her nerves are shot. It doesn’t help that she has two bratty daughters, or that her mother, The Countess, is visiting the mansion and her husband is a philandering fool. However, everyone soon begins to fear Martino and his imaginary friend Luca.


  1. Have you seen the Piranha remake yet? It is actually awesome! Good old fashion throw-back 70's style monster film.

  2. oh i love ghost stories..especially for old movies. i swear they just don't make good horror movies anymore. do you ever watch korean horror movies? they have some pretty insane plots

  3. I haven't seen Piranha 3D yet...not sure I'll make it due to the high cost of going to the movies. It looks like mindless fun, tho, so I'll probably catch it on DVD.

    I went through a big Asian horror movie phase, but sad to say I kinda got burnt out on them after a few years. I haven't seen any lately...got any recommendations?
