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
I liked it. This was my first Argento film. I liked the camera work and sountrack! I especially liked the ending! look forward to watching his other films!
Soundtrack makes it a 5. Story gets a little convoluted toward the end but it's a fun watch. Love Argento's visual style.
I personally found it to be cheesy though and through.
Might be Argento’s best. Fantastic soundtrack courtesy of Goblin.
A true classic
