The best I can say is that I didn't entirely hate it.
Nearly every scene is stolen - well, self-cannibalized, to be fair - from previous works by the director, and those which aren't are either overly garish or strangely lackluster. The acting was uniformly awful, which isn't unexpected, but damned if it wasn't worse than usual. The score is decent, but a far cry from the maddening strains of Suspiria. The dreamlike qualities of particularily Suspiria and Phenomena, which covered many of those films flaws, are not present here.
Unless you're an Argento completist who absolutely NEEDS to know, it may be in your best interests to rent this title rather than buy it.
Dario Argento finally finished his "Three Mother's Trilogy", the first being the classic "Suspiria" (1977) followed by "Inferno" (1980), with this rather nasty little horror flick. In comparison to the glorious original, it is sorely lacking. Not in the gore since there is an abundance of it here, but in its originality and overall execution. "Suspiria" is one of my favorite horror films of all times. Despite a bizarre storyline with loop holes galore, Argento was able to create a masterwork of suspense, creative camera angles, some nice cinematography with rich vivid colors despite the over-use of 70's cheesiness and a haunting score. "Mother of Tears", set several decades later, doesn't offer that kind of visual magic and although it's more visceral, the violence far more graphic, there is little to no suspense. With that said, this film entertained me immensely. Argento's film catalogue throughout the last two and a half decades have been lacking.Read more ›
Well that's what I'm about to do because I haven't seen the first two (but I will soon) and so here it goes.
If your a gore hound you should be reasonably happy watching this movie as the kills are of the over the top variety not to crazy but crazy enough and better than most horror movies.
Beside that yes the acting is less then stellar but easily watchable, it doesn't have a high budget feel to it (except for the kill scenes...more work was put into those then anything else I would suspect..witch (PUN intended) is fine by me.
I own it, I've watch it three times and it still entertains, how will the other first two compare now the I've seen the ending first?
Well judging by the reviews I should be in for a treat.
If a horror fan then yes watch the movie...heck maybe even buy it.
