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 is stalks a horror writer in one of Dario Argento's most celebrated gialli.
Cast: Anthony Franciosa, Giuliano Gemma, John Saxon
Somewhat cheesy 80's horror fare (a la Erol's on a Friday night) with the exception of not quite knowing who the culprit is until the end. Bonus for another stellar soundtrack from Goblin, which may or may not have been why I picked this movie to begin with ;)
A bit of a slow burn, but pretty good. Some really awesome death scenes make it worth it.
Fun slasher, but not my favorite Argento flick.
This might be the most fun out of any of the Argento films? It's hard to compare but it feels as though there's a real Glee to the murder sequences in this film that -- which might just be a testiment to the theme track from Goblin. I adore Giuliano Gemma, so I love getting to see him in an Argento film. Stylish as ever, looks great. Just awesome all around.
This Argento film is pretty good, another excellent giallo of his. The ending is superb. A film with lots of twists & turns along the way. A little slow at times, but overall, another awesome Dario Argento thriller waiting to be discovered by new fans of the Italian Master of Suspense.
