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
Beautiful soundtrack and great movie
Not Argento’s best work, but very memorable to me. I’ve seen several times and I must say it keeps me engaged. Great music and cinematography as usual for Argento. Brings back a bit of nostalgia for the 80s. Surreal and dreamlike...strange story but definitely unique.
Although not one of Argento's finest works by any stretch (bad acting, the movie moves slowly in parts, a certain lack of characterization of the main protagonists), some of his best signature traits are in here and they're glorious. Also this movie makes me feel very nostalgic as it was one of the first horrors to genuinely terrify me as a kid
loved it. Felt like a dark fairytale and was into the music choices. Bravo!
Good music video. Not so great film. Ending was worth it which bumps the rating from 1 to 3 in my books.
