While there are lots of shots in this art house horror film which aren't scary with it's delicious cherry sauce flowing blood, there is a soundtrack which will haunt your eardrums and most likely your dreams, scaring the crap out of your subconscious many days later. Visually, you may never see a more fantastically lit film. Never mind the shoddy character development or barely there plot, the lighting is a star all it's own in this fright feature. So bust out your best trippy weed the budtender suggested (or dealer for you folks not in weed friendly parts of the world) and together let us enter the world of Dario Argento.
And is it just me that thinks that Dino Velvet was somehow based on Argento or have I just seen one too many Nick Cage films?
Side note: Visual artist Stan Douglas was so inspired by this film he created a video/art installation as an homage, but more so as a attempt to "enlarge in both a sensual and intellectual way the experience of the cinematic and museum space." If anyone can find video of this, I want to see it. Sounds like heavy shit.
