Judging by the amount of other user-comments and their content aroundhere, this "Aenigma" (love the alternate spelling!) is a lesser knownand thoroughly hated Lucio Fulci film. Well sure, it's not a patch onhis earlier work but still it remains a remotely enjoyable bloodbathwith some inventive killings (the snails!!) and an appealing cast ofyoung & sexy schoolgirls. The story, although highly unoriginal, iseasy to follow, unpretentious and fast-paced. Black sheep of Catholicgirl's dorm Kathy is involved in a near-fatal car accident after aprank with the school's gym teacher. Shortly after, a new and extrovertgirl makes her entry in the dorm but her mind seems controlled by thecomatose Kathy. Through Eva Gordon, Kathy and her spiritual mother seea chance for revenge, starting with the death of the insufferable machogym teacher. Fulci keeps the gore under control this time and focusesmore on the brooding atmosphere. "Aenigma" features some beautifulcamera-work, although admittedly, the same camera angles are oftenre-used several times. The girls' acting is extremely hammy and it's agood thing they all all look so cute, otherwise it would have been alot more difficult to struggle yourself through the movie. Nothingspectacular or special, but it certainly isn't terrible, neither.
