Solid and scary episode in the Door Into Darkness venture
11 May 2004 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

This less than an hour episode in the Door Into Darkness series, directed by Dario Argento, is very good. Considering the limitations put on Argento by the BBC of Italy's television, it's surprising how much suspense Argento could pull of with this little tale. The story goes like this: A woman is driving by the countryside late at night and a figure (woman) falls before the vehicle. At close inspection it seems that this woman has been shot and seems to be dead. The driver goes and reports the incident but when the police visit the scene of the crime, the woman has disappeared without a trace. Did the witness imagine this, or is she the next target? The episode is well written and directed (Argento at the height of his career) and the final ten minutes are "mucho" suspenseful. These episodes did not have big budgets, and it shows, but that only helps to give it the raw look it benefits from. This episode is the best of the Door Into Darkness series, which consisted of four episodes, only two of which were directed by Argento. This one gets 9 out of 10.
