As a longtime fan of Suspiria, and of Argento in general (at least up until Opera), I had some enthusiasm for this title. Okay, I didn't expect it to be as great as the movie which kick-started the Three Mothers trilogy, especially since this final installment comes nearly three decades later, but I still had hopes.

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.

Set in present day Rome, a large chest is unearthed in an old cemetery and is sent to Rome's Natural History Museum for inspection. Once it is opened by an unsuspecting archeologist (who meets a heck of a demise BTW), it re-awakens the last surviving Black Witch known as Mater Lachrimarum (Mother of Tears) and restores her powers. She then summons all witches from every corner of the globe to travel to Rome and witness her return. In the meantime, Rome becomes engulfed in violence and chaos and it is up to our heroine Sarah (Asia Argento) to try to find a way to defeat this ungodly witch since she is linked to the current events through her deceased mother, who when alive, was a powerful White Witch.

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.

luckily the gore in this movie makes you forget about how boring everything else was. And I mean that as literaly as you can take it, whenever something gory was happening i completly forgot that i was almost falling asleep leading up to it. Good stuff, clevers to the face, repetedly...limbs being chopped off, skin peeled, and people being 'skewered'. Did I make my point? this movie has good gore. But then i regress, the acting was absolutly terrible and would cause me to constantly lose interest, tiss a shame but i recall that happening in most giallo horror. Another possitive however would be the nudity. Most of the female characters in the movie get naked so thats nice to see and Mr. Argento even tosses in a pointless scene of his real life daughter in the shower. Thanks bro. One other thing i found odd however was the random demons they would through in when this is suppose to be a witch movie. It didnt fit right to me. The first three were fine but then there was a moment where you saw one in a reflection in a mirror, or in the reflection of someones sunglasses or i believe there was one dream sequence with a completly unneeded demon. They just didnt fit with the rest of the movie. Oh well, i wouldnt say this movie was terrible but it just seemed to have so much potential that was dragged down by terrible acting and 'dry' scenes.

Yeah so a few people here are comparing it to the first two and no one has reviewed as stand alone movie.
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.
