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.
a long strange film but i enjoyed it i think it plays heavily on how fragile the human mind can be under extreme duress also i am just now seeing argento's films i have watched a few on shudder and i am enjoying most of them i would like to see TRAUMA on shudder and DEMONS and DEMONS 2 is still unavailable i would like to see those
Had me screaming and my blood curdling.
Slow at times
