Directed by Dario Argento
In Dario Argento’s follow-up to SUSPIRIA, a man investigates witches who may inhabit the New York apartment building where his sister lived before she mysteriously disappeared. But after Mark begins to seek out the truth, he soon finds himself caught in a labyrinth of lies, murder and unspeakable evil. Despite the initial critical drubbing it received, INFERNO is now regarded as one of Argento’s masterpieces, thanks to its over-the-top use of color and outrageously twisted murder sequences. The opening underwater sequence is a masterclass in suspense and horror.

Classic Argento. Wonderful color photography, dreamlike illogical spatial geography, and cool music. Plus Daria Nicolodi, bloody kills, and more about the Three Mothers. P.S. you might want to skip if you have a thing for cats...or rats....
I guess I kinda liked it. It’s very pretty, has some cool kills, and the under water scene is very well executed. I just didn’t like it as much as Suspiria, Phenomena, or Tenebrae. Put it on your list, maybe just towards the back.
Plodding and nonsensical. Could have been called Yawnferno
Kind of a mess but a beatiful one. This is essetinal, wish Shudder would add the final one that starred Asia Argento
Messy....nonsensical....bombastic....but essential! Don’t try to figure it out-just watch it unfold🤡🤡🤡
