Directed by Dario Argento
During her first night at boarding school, Jennifer (Jennifer Connelly) witnesses a horrible murder while sleepwalking. After digging deeper into the crime, Jennifer meets a professor (Donald Pleasence, HALLOWEEN) who uncovers her psychic connection to insects, and encourages her to use her strange gift to catch the killer. Dario Argento’s sci-fi spin on his iconic giallo style has divided fans since its’ release but for us, its squirmy pleasures have only deepened. Beyond the bugs, maggots and monkeys, it’s a creepy-crawly must-see, especially for Connelly’s fearless performance.
A girl with a psychic connection to insects must use her gift to catch a killer.
Cast: Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence, Daria Nicolodi
A bit ridiculous but enjoyable. Everything was unexpected and nothing was predictable.
Not as epic as it’s Theme by Goblin but never the less it is still a fun Giallio with great music and cinematography!
Coming from a massive fan of Argento, this might be one of his most memorable, just because every single second there's something new and unexpected. It never ceases to move forwards at a breathtaking level of "slap you in the face" insanity that still works in the film's favor. The ending is infinitely disturbing. Also, Iron Maiden and Motorhead are in it, and they add to the atmosphere in ways you wouldn't expect metal songs to do. Check this one out for sure.
If you are into animals beating up humans, this is the type of film! plus Iron Maiden woohoooo!
wow. breathtaking. -shadows
