This movie consists of:
- Bored housewives victimized
- Romero & Savini
- 70s slow burn horror
After the big hit of Dawn of the Dead, producer Alfredo Cuomo bought the rights of Martin and released it in Italy in a much different cut than the one known in the USA, running just 1h 22min. Best of all,this cut is completely scored by The Goblins, using left-over tracks from Zombi-Dawn of the Dead and Suspiria.
