The scene at Central Park takes place during a lunar eclipse. However, the eclipse mimics the aesthetic characteristics of a solar eclipse with the Moon being completely blacked out, surrounded by a corona, just as if something had moved between Earth and Moon. However a real lunar eclipse doesn't appear to be pitch black but as a dark reddish layer and there certainly isn't a corona which is a feature of the sun. See more »
Have you ever heard of the Three Sisters?
You mean those black singers?
No, I'm talking about mythology.
Hold on, if you're talking about spooks and stuff, I don't believe in any of that.
How can you be so sure?
I don't believe in such things, that's all, and without any philosophical discussion.
Then what do you believe in?
In whatever I can see and touch.

Okay, here's the deal: If you need a coherent movie with an algebraic plot, skip this one. If you are interested in Dario Argento but haven't seen any of his films, start with something else. If you are a fan of Dario Argento, do yourself a favor and buy this one. Inferno is weird, makes no sense, but is a gorgeous horror film. I loved it.
