“ *****
A masterpiece of visionary Horror from the poet of gore Lucio Fulci, and in my opinion the best chapter of the trilogy.
Once again, the story is not one of the most original (witchcraft, gates of hell, ghosts, zombies) and numerous are the references to other authors (Henry James, Lovecraft, Artaud and Argento), but Fulci can astutely mix these elements and bring them to the screen with a personal and original style, creativity and technique.
As often in his movies, the script is not perfect and not much linear, but it doesn't matter since the director prefers to surprise with imagination, macabre atmosphere, surreal images, voices and whispers, extreme close-ups and spectacular splatter effects. This time, we have the "pleasure" of watching a man tortured and crucified to the wall, bodies dissolved in acid, an exploding head, a killer dog, flesh-eating tarantulas... However, the gross and extreme gore effects combine with the refinement and accuracy of cinematography, sound and direction. The whole is crowned by a magnificent and apocalyptic ending. ” - Caltiki05

Director: Dario Argento
“ **** 1/2
A classic giallo rich in innovative and highly experimental ideas, either for the technical aspect or for the development of plot. The murder scenes, characterized by acrobatic camera movements and memorable close-ups, are truly well-done. The plot is very intricate, but flowing and exciting, and psychologically well thought out. Truly suspenseful and fascinating. Tenebre is one of the most violent and bloody Dario's films: razors, daggers, axes and even paper as murder weapons, used against a dozen victims. Nevertheless, the murders take place in the daylight, or anyway in very bright places, in an unusual Rome, aseptic and almost futuristic. Plus, irony is often present in the dialogues and in several situations.
Definitely one of the best works directed by Dario Argento, assisted by Lamberto Bava and Michele Soavi, who also have a cameo in the film. ” - Caltiki05
