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.

Cool flick but shudder is missing his best film they need to add suspiria Argento’s best film hands down
Just keep in mind the main character is the director's daughter as you're watching it, and you'll understand my rating. Butchered nineties "girl power" and bad CGI abound. Skip it.
I love Argento, and as a former art history major, i was intrigued by the premise of this film... but this was a struggle. Really not good. It kind of pissed me off, actually - I mean, everything was there for it to be a really cool film, but it's just a mess. Sigh.
I’ve tried to sit through this a handful of times......but lord I was bored to pieces....maybe I’ll try again???
Not the best Argento. Although some interesting moments.
