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.

Some interesting artistry, but it didn’t quite make up for the predictable and super problematic plot.

Argento and Giallo completionists should check it out, anyone else wont like it. It’s over long a bit messy and mean spirited and lacks the magic of Argento’s earlier films.

Oof. I'm admittedly not a die hard fan of Giallo horror, but I feel like this is one of the most predictable ones I've seen. I had the ending nailed by a third of the movie in perhaps?

Does no-one know the difference between “to” and “ too”? I’m going TO the store; it’s not TOO far. This is elementary school English. Sheesh!

A great Argento psychological thriller. Asia Argento does a wonderful job as the main character and the cinematography is gore-gious 💋
