    "My father's childhood had been about Bava's horrors, and Caltiki was one of them. I watched this with my dad and I came to appreciate the classic graphics, props and other film elements available back then, yet Bava had pulled off professionally."

    "Of all Mario Bava movies, Shock did not stood out well for me. The horror was too cheesy. I wasn't shock despite what the title of the movie suggest. Not good."
