Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dario Argento's sequel to Suspiria, his first and to date only American hit, is an even more incoherent nightmare fantasy. Laden with symbolic imagery and fantastic explosions of death shot in candy-colored hues, it's a bloody feast for the eyes. Mark (Leigh McCloskey), an American music student in Rome, rushes home to New York after a frantic phone call from his sister only to find an empty apartment and obscure clues about a supernatural presence in her spooky building. It all has something to do with the mysterious Mater Tenebrarum, one of the "Three Mothers" of Argento's murky mythology, and the fun house of an apartment house she inhabits, complete with a fully furnished underwater ballroom, miles of secret tunnels flooded in red and blue light, and hidden passageways under the floorboards. Meanwhile, there's a killer running around stabbing beautiful women for who knows what reason, a crippled bookseller attacked by rats, and a homicidal hot-dog vendor in Central Park. Why? It's best not to ponder such mysteries--Argento obviously isn't as concerned with making sense of his meticulously staged murders as he is with lighting them with just the right hue. Dramatically it's inert, a parade of quirky but faceless victims dispatched with elaborate care, but it's beautifully designed and executed, a spectacle of elaborate set pieces and magnificent decor orchestrated with a complete disdain for narrative logic. --Sean Axmaker

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to "SUSPIRIA"... July 12 2004
By Blade
Format:DVD
This 1980 Italian horror hit by Dario Argento is one of his finest since its previous installment, "Suspiria" and carries some of the same resemblance of that film with its beautifully artistic atmosphere and it's stylishy grotesque layout. However, the plotholes that were of the first film start to come together a little more in this one and is easier to understand. It is also the second part to the still incomplete 'Three Mothers' trilogy and will keep you at the edge of your seat. I don't think I've watched too many of these films that actually makes me jump at certain scenes, whether its a falling vase or just a plain old stray cat.
When a young man's sister, Rose disappears after opening a mysterious diary known as "The Three Sisters", her brother, Mark (acted well by Leigh McCloskey) must investigate her old apartment complex that she lives in which also used to be an old mansion used by an old alchemist who created the three homes where each of the sister's ghosts take refuge. All this leads to an scary adventure through the many secret passageways of the old estate, complete with an underwater ball room, a mute old man who's always watching our hero, & a killer that lurks around every corner for those who learn more about the second mother: the Mother of Darkness. In the end, Mark must stop the evil presence before all hell breaks loose out into the world! It's a terriying trip into the unknown and will leave you breathless till the last thrilling scene!
The movie is in its WIDESCREEN Presentation (1.85:1) & is enhanced for 16x9 T.V. sets and includes an Exclusive Dario Argento interview, the original theatrical trailer, a still gallery, and talent bios.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6th film of Argento's. This one was amazing! Oct. 23 2004
Format:DVD
In my review for Suspiria I put that it was my 4th film of Argento's I watched but it was my 5th...just wanted to fix that first.
Inferno is one hot movie. I cannot believe how scary this movie is. It is very dark, gothic. This is one erie story fimilar to Suspiria. This time, there is less time to get to know the characters because they don't stay alive long. What I am trying to say is..there seems to be a huge difference between this and Suspiria. Suspiria had a less complex story, you got to know the characters well, it made sense. Inferno, the story is far more bizarre, you don't really see the witch often (more in 1st person views during murders..seeing gloves). This film leaves me with an uneasy feeling. It sort of makes you wonder about life. I'm not saying I believe in witches, but this opens up your mind and makes you wonder about things. The hot dog vendor was freaky. I heard about this part before I saw this movie so when I saw him running..I knew what he was going to do. This film is one of the scariest I have ever viewed. It is so dark that I am left with unsetteling feelings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a few noticable flaws bring it down Jan. 3 2004
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of Suspiria and Dario Argento so naturally after seeing Suspiria I rushed out and bought this. I knew this installment couldn't really match up to Suspiria but to tell you the truth I couldn't help but be a little dissapointed. Here are some of my likes/dislikes with the film.
LIKES:
Dario's direction and sense of style have not changed and the set pieces and shots in the film are top notch.
The kill count nearly doubles in this installment which leads to some very good moments, and some not as good. But nothing horrible (I mean you gotta love that hot dog vendor scene). And although the music may not be as creepy the suspense is still very much there.
The elaboration on the plot (although still a little confusing) is always nice.
DISLIKES:
The music bugged me a lot and is by far my number 1 compaint with this film and basically why I gave a 3 instead of a 4. This may seem trivial but the heart pumping masterwork in Suspiria gripped you and kept you on the edge of your seat for the rest of the film. The score in Inferno just fails to do this and is mostly just a soft piano score which loosens the tension and atmosphere for a lot of the film.
The only other thing that bugged me enough to mention was a few of the killings. I mean as I stated earlier I like most of them but they failed to match up to the grandiose masterpieces in Suspiria. More deaths are always good but it seems in some cases they exchanged quality for quantity. Moreover the back on the DVD says it's uncut but particularily in one of the scenes it fades out rather abruptly which bugged me because it was probably the best death in the film (I speaking of the window scene where Rose is killed).

OVERALL:
Despite a few areas most of the aspects of this movie are quite enjoyable and I highly reccomend this, especially to fans of Suspiria and Dario Argento.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon the twisted and surreal world of Dario Argento completely by accident. I am a horror movie affecionado and when I got my DVD player (soon upgrading to Blu-Ray) I was eager in purchasing as many horror films as possible- well at least the good ones. Unfortunately that's when I realized they're aren't that many good ones out there at all. Aside from the obvious classics - "The Exorcist", "Poltergeist", "The Shining", "Halloween" etc I couldn't bring myself to purchase the other, countless horror trash- sure they make an entertaining viewing when they're shown on T.V but spending your hard earned cash on them is a little harder to do. That's where Dario comes in. Amazon.com steered me in his direction during my countless Amazon.com horror movie searches and I'm glad they did. Since then, I've purchased many of his more popular films namely "Deep Red", "Suspiria", "Tenebrae", "Inferno", "Phenomena" and "Opera". Hollywood rarely makes movies like these anymore and the movie that comes to mind that is comparable in style is Brian de Palma's "Dressed to Kill".

"Inferno" is Argento's second entry in his Three Mother's Trilogy, the first being the now classic "Suspiria". The story takes place in New York City where a beautiful young woman stumbles upon a book written by an alchemist who was responsible in building the dwelling places of the three infernal mothers. These three otherworldly women are evil sisters who control the world and are set in Germany, Italy and the US- New York City. Anyone who dares to investigate the book is brutally murdered by diabolical forces. Many critics have complained about the confusing plot of "Inferno" and not many have understood it. They have complained about the plot holes and confusing plot twists and with good reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Argento's first film of the 1980s

4.0 out of 5 stars Something about this movie...
Watching this film feels closer to staring at a dark surrealist painting than seeing a movie. Not everything makes 100% sense, but it doesn't really have to. Read more

Ce film est déconcertant et très vieux. Il est impossible d'entrer dans l'histoire tant c'est mauvais et long. À oublier.
