"For more than a year, the uno bianca gang - they always use a white Fiat Uno - has plagued the area. Their crimes are violent, sometimes killing carabineri, and there's no particular pattern: a bank one day, a petrol station the next, extortion of a small business the next. Are they terrorist-s? A foreign gang? Tied to the Mafia? After a particularly bloody shootout, two detectives are assigned to start fresh: they go through the notebooks of previous investigators and they interview a few witnesses again. They find a pattern in the crimes."

In una cattedrale gotica nella Germania dei nostri giorni accadono fatti misteriosi.

La porta della chiesa si chiude misteriosamente. Tutti gli occupanti sono uccisi o invasati. L'unico che resiste è un prete di colore che, a prezzo della vita, fa crollare la cattedrale seppellendo nuovamente tutti i suoi terribili segreti. Michele Soavi, allievo di Dario Argento (che ha anche prodotto e scritto il film), si conferma buon evocatore d'atmosfere, ma confuso e farraginoso narratore. (Mymovies)
