Tenebrae

Tenebrae

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

This was a great movie with lots of twists and turns... and yeah, very little in the way of bras for some reason? I enjoyed this film way more than I expected to! Really nicely done and... I love John Saxon.

Slices through the Giallo checklist with a sense of efficiency and beauty only Argento can provide.

Typical Argento. Typical slasher. Gory deaths are cool. Best part: sick soundtrack.
