Directed by Dario Argento
Horror novelist Peter Neal (Tony Franciosa) arrives in Rome for a book tour just as a series of brutal murders begin. When Peter learns the killer is a superfan inspired by his gruesome novels, he decides to solve the crimes. As the slasher’s blade continues its bloodthirsty business, Neal realizes he must dive deep into his memories if he wants to catch the killer. After a scary experience being menaced by a real-life obsessed fan, Dario Argento poured his fears into this visually stunning return to form, loading TENEBRE with some of the most gorgeous and horrific murders in all the director’s oeuvre.
A razor-wielding psycho stalks a horror writer in one of Dario Argento's most celebrated gialli.
Cast: Anthony Franciosa, Giuliano Gemma, John Saxon
Wow! What a shocking ending with a nice fake out! Argento knows how to craft a film full of great suspense, music, cinematography, and excellent use of color & shadow!
One of Argento's best and a shining example of the genre.
I can’t believe it took me so long to watch this.
If you love Giallo, you’ll love this.
A great Argento Giallo!! It has all the tropes you love and they're executed well!! I've been binge watching Giallos on Shudder for the last few days and this is my second favorite. (My first has gotta be Phenomena, that shit's bonkers!!)
