The Stendhal Syndrome

The Stendhal Syndrome

Directed by Dario Argento

A detective suffers strange hallucinations while hunting a serial killer in Dario Argento’s bone-chilling ‘90s masterpiece. Anna (Asia Argento) is on the trail of a psycho when she experiences Stendhal syndrome, a condition that causes people to become overwhelmed by works of art to the point of psychosis. But when the killer kidnaps and rapes her, it begins a process that threatens all who cross Anna’s path. Using CGI to bring Anna’s artistic hallucinations to life, Argento crafts a brutal yet visually stunning thriller that stands on par with his classics. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

I love every one of his films. The aesthetics are always pleasing and the horror shocking. I always like the music too.

This movie was a bit long, but still really great. Definitely worth watching.
