If 1977’s hallucinogenic and hyperbolic shocker Suspiria was as close as Italian director Dario Argento could get to a nightmare on celluloid, then the sequel, 1980’s Inferno is even more difficult to pin down because of its disavowal of any recourse to logic. Although Inferno continues the exploration of the mythical Three Mothers, it manages to have an illogical internal structure all of its own. This is Argento’s most unique production. Inferno takes narrative incoherence …Continue Reading...
After the critical and commercial failure of Dario Argento’s historical comedy The Five Days of Milan (1973), he returned chastened to the familiar terrain of the giallo. This was a territory that Argento had helped to both popularise and innovate with such trend setting suspense filled films as Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970), The Cat O’ Nine Tails (1971) and the obscure Four Flies on Grey Velvet (1971). For his fourth and ultimately defining entry into …Continue Reading...
Dario Argento’s masterpiece, Suspiria, relies almost completely on atmosphere—color, music, and setting—to create a sense of horror. Of course, there is gore (this is an Argento movie, after all), but the gore has a stylistic, high-contrast, hyper-real quality that does the opposite of what gore in movies usually does. Suspiria’s violence doesn’t make the viewer want to turn away—it makes the viewer stare, guilty that they do not even want to look …Continue Reading...
Lamberto Bava, Dario Argento, and the demons may be back, but it’s just not quite the same this go around. For lack of a better term, I have sort of a love-hate relationship with Demons 2. On the one hand it successfully taps into the style, make-up, and mayhem of the original; but on the other hand it has almost none of the gore or bite that made that film so much …Continue Reading...

Neil Marshall steps aside, but not completely off the film set, for this much anticipated sequel. The original Descent was directed by Mr. Marshall, and while he’s producing the sequel, the editor of the first installment has given the film a go as director. Even though this is Jon Harris’s directorial debut, expect much of the same in respects to the brutal carnage, claustrophobic dwellings, and fast paced action.

PA made quite an impression on domestic audiences. The film cost $15,000 to shoot in just two weeks. How much did the film gross domestically? A little over 100 million! Well, it turns out that the film is becoming just as huge of a hit overseas. Within its opening week in countries such as the U.K and Germany, it raked in just a little over 35 million at box offices.
So what does …
