Following his supernatural sojourns, Suspiria and Inferno, Argento steps back into the real world for a blood-soaked tale of murder and meta-textuality.

Crime 1982 101 mins

Director: Dario Argento



With a brutalist, almost futuristic aesthetic, Argento’s tale of a crime writer who learns someone is pillaging his latest novel for murderous inspiration was a stark departure from the Technicolor excess he was known for. And yet, under its chilly veneer, this icy meta-giallo stands as one of his most personal films – a shrewd moment of introspection and a sly middle finger to those critics who condemned the violent nature of his work. This presentation is in Italian with English subtitles.
