In New York, a man in a cop's uniform starts killing people for no apparent reason. -- IMDb

I think it's a bit of a stretch, calling this a Horror, but I'm going to include it anyway.

Hey, Ted, where's that corkscrew? You know, that fancy corkscrew for the wine bottle? Ted. Ted? TED! HEY, TED, where the hell is the corkscrew?

One of my favourites from the series. It has a darker tone than the preceding movies.

BTW, I watched the HDTV rip that's floating around the net, not the DVD. The image is just to show how generic the covers have become.


Edit:

This is the Blu-ray cover for Final Chapter. No mention of the release date though.

I made a few edits while Helen was posting. She is referring to the new DVD covers, not the Blu-ray.

My thought is Crash will probably appreciate this movie. I personally rank "Suspiria" as Dario Argento's greatest work and I appreciate both "Tenebre" and "Phenomena" from the 80's as excellent horror films. Crash.. why is the book in the movie titled "Tenebrae", but the movie "Tenebre"?

 -

Anyway.. I actually thought "Inferno" was a very stylish supernatural thriller which centered around the idea that three ancient mothers–witches–live inside custom built structures in three major cities. Rose Elliot becomes obsessed with the story behind these witches, which soon puts everyone she knows and loves in great danger. Essentially, "Inferno" is a nightmarish haunted house film with incredibly spooky moments and rather gory death scenes. And if you are a cat-lover .. beware!

While the first part of this supposed trilogy, "Susperia", is regarded as a masterpiece of sorts.. it appears Inferno‘s reputation is not nearly as solid though it doesn’t quite get the thrashing that the final installment, 2007‘s "Mother of Tears", receives. Though I've yet to see it to truly give my opinion.

I know several of you are probably shocked to find out that I enjoyed this movie since it is out of my normal scope of horror viewing, but let me bring the guy in the pic above in a little closer for a second look to explain it better..

 -

That's right "Just One of the Guys" fans.. one of the stars of "Inferno" is Leigh McCloskey or better known to many of us .. Kevina! I have to admit that he was actually the weakest link in this film, but maybe that was just because his 70's looking mustache was so distracting. ha!

 -

Overall, I thought "inferno' was visually shocking and way creepy. Especially the underwater hole in the basement floor scene with Irene Miracle that was just stunning to watch and made the movie for me. 'Beautifully chilling' might be a better description.

So I've got to mention Daria Nicolodi the long-term partner of Dario Argento who was great in this film, but more than her acting.. I need to share this statement she made years later in a magazine article:

"I wrote Suspiria for Argento... title, subject and script. The inspiration came from a tale my grandmother, Yvonne, used to tell me when I was a child, after an experience she had in a northern acting academy where she discovered the teachers were teaching arts, but also black magic. I was fond of this story of her's more than Pinnocchio by Collodi, and when I told it to Dario it was natural for him to fall in love with it too. It was his first step from thrillers to fantasy-alchemy movies and we did it together."

 -

This interesting picture of Ania Pieroni from "Inferno" makes me so wish now that the final installment of thsi trilogy had been made in the 80's. If you are looking at the picture and thinking you know that girl from something.. my first thought is "Tenebre" mentioned above. But it could be "The House By Cemetary" for some of you horror fans.

The film is spelt Tenebrae here. Inferno is one of the few Argento films I don't rate highly. Just does nothing for me this one.

Tip o' the hat, Valley. Inferno is terrific. For years it was very hard to see. Despite having a big hit with Suspiria, 20th Century-Fox kept this in the vault, unreleased, for years. They then put it out on VHS, but no one ever saw a copy.The later Anchor Bay DVD was a blessing. This is a a gorgeous looking film with Argento's beautiful use of color and startlingly creepy scenes. I agree that Suspiria is Argento's greatest film, but Inferno is excellent. Sadly, the trilogy ended with the ludicrous The Mother of Tears, one of his worst. Argento is possibly the greatest, yet least known, world-class director ever.

I believe that Tenebrae is the genitive case in Latin and means "of shadows." Tenebre means simply "shadows."

Check it out!

I watched John Carpenter's The Ward. It was very good. I also watched Graveyard Shift again, the first time I'd seen it in ages. I'm sure I'll dream about giant rats lol.

Devolution here,

J- I'm surprised you only gave Sleepaway Camp 2/5. It's a little too classic for me to only be 2. Note: NEVER see Return to Sleepaway Camp. It's awful. Good news though, Angela and Rick come back for it. That is the only good news.

It rots.

Devo,

I don't think I was really in the mood to watch "Sleepaway Camp" when I did.

I'm going to watch it again soon.


Last few days:

Dawn of The Dead (1978)

"Dawn of the Dead" is a classic of it's genre.


I watched the Romero Cut. Anybody prefer Argento's version?


Fright Night 2 (1988)


My appreciation for this has increased over the last few years, but I still find it weak compared to "Fright Night".


Traci Lind & Julie Carmen are awesome to look at though..  -

I watched the Romero Cut. Anybody prefer Argento's version?



J2ME, I have this film in more versions that you can imagine--from a blurry PAL copy of the Argento cut to the "ultimate" DVD version. I like Argento's version. I've seen Dawn so many times that the Argento cut felt like a different film to me. Have you seen the "non-theatrical version," that is, the version that orignally was rented in 16mm to college campuses? It's actually longer than the director's cut, as I recall. Tom Savini once said that there is a "German TV version" floating around that has most of the violence removed. That must be similar to the ill-fated "R" rated U.S. re-release of the film along with "Creepshow" in 1982. It ran for exactly one week, lots of folks complained, and it got pulled. A friend of mine actually saw it out of curiosity (he's the only person I've ever met who has), and he said that everything was a cut-away--the shotgun is pulled up, it's fired, and then the film cuts away without showing what happened... He said that it was just terrible!

Too many versions! ROFL.

Crash,

I've only ever seen the US theatrical cut. I might check out the Argento version later, I'm interested to see just how much it differs.
