It's been three decades since Italian filmmaker Claudio Lattanzi helmed a feature film, and regrettably his rustiness infects this production, much like the plague does his fictional population. Above anything else, Crucified's hackneyed story is something seen all too often, and it's not helped by a mediocre screenplay, and below-par performances. It's a shame as the opening act brings about some hope; setting up a potentially baroque, gothic horror that would follow in the long lineage of stylized Italian movies of this very nature. But it soon becomes a cliched all-too-familiar pandemic movie.

It does pick up toward the latter stages, and the final act is completely bizarre, which could frustrate some, but at least it attempts something different. On the plus side, the movie has a strong atmospheric quality -- a sombre, almost industrious grey that fills the screen with no sense of hope and provides a claustrophobic tone. But sadly it's not enough to save this film from tedium, even at just 72 minutes long.
