argento's true masterpiece, a lot better than the overrated Susperia,

Super weird Italian spooky pop music. Surprising gore! Giant disturbing children's drawings! Seventies fashion! Beautiful women saying nonsensical things! IT MUST BE DARIO ARGENTO! Plus, dishy young David Hemings.

This one is my introduction to Dario Argento's work (aside from Sergio Leone's "Once Upon A Time In The West", which I just found out he was a collaborator on. But that doesn't count, to me, as I'd consider that Leone's piece...) Anyhoo, initially, I thought the actors were cheezy. But the film grew on me. The pacing was good. I *really* enjoyed the score from the "Goblins"; it provided a building tension that was unmistakeable and remarkably effective. That creepy little motorized automaton kid scared the freaking daylights out of me. Altogether, I think I'm intrigued with Argento. I'd really like to check out "Suspiria", but the B.P.L. doesn't have a copy... (Hello, B.P L. staff... anybody listening?)

One of the great Italian Giallos. Gorgeous cinematography and a terrifically creepy score by frequent Argento collaborators Goblin. A must-see for fans of the genre and a good starting point for anyone wanting to delve into Dario Argento's filmography.

Illogical and almost incoherent would-be thriller. Distinguished only by handsome cinematography and two unusual deaths for fans of such. Everyone else should steer far clear...

I've seen 'Suspiria' and 'Phenomena' both of which held my attention. After 20 minutes I turned this one off, very dull, yawn.

A great film- Argento's best in my opinion, and one of the very best of the specifically Italian suspense thrillers/ whodunnits/ mystery-horror crossovers referred to as "giallos". For the guy above, if you're interested in pinning people's eyes opened and forcing them to watch things, that's in another Argento film, 1987's "Opera", (it's on the shelf right now at the branch I'm writing from, "Epiphany" on 23rd Street btwn. 2nd and 3rd Avenues.)

I will track down the stranger who suggested I watch this and pin their eyes back and make them watch it again and again until their head explodes.

Marcus Daly (to little Olga, who just got slapped in the face by her father): "What'd you do?" Olga: "Nothing. Don't pay any attention; my father's just a little crazy." (Meanwhile, a lizard with a pin through its head is squirming on the ground at her father's feet)
