According to the book "Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark" (2007) by Tim Lucas, Sacha Pitoëff's death scene was filmed on location in Central Park during the summer of 1979. Production Coordinator William Lustig said of this: "They filmed the actor carrying a bag that contained some kind of moving mechanism, to make it look like it was full of cats. He walked into the lake, pushed the bag underwater, and fell in. At that point, some phony mechanical rats were attached to him for close-ups. When the guy at the hamburger stand runs over the lake... that guy was actually running on a Plexiglas bridge under the water; it made it look like he was actually running across the surface of the lake. All of the stuff with the live rats was shot back in Europe.". See more »

Beautiful and chilling follow-up to Argento's classic Suspiria (1977) is an underrated film and one that Argento himself declares to be his 'purest' work!
Music student receives troubling news from his sister and travels to New York, where he discovers sinister evils at work.
Many critics have said that this film lacks sense in the storyline, but it's actually a more coherent story than they would have you think. The story does evoke a dark world of its own, taught with suspense and a touch of the surreal. Naturally, the greatest thing about this film is of course Argento's wonderful style! Agrento again flairs his colorful direction with excellent camera work, lavish uses of color and lighting, unique set pieces, and an atmosphere of sheer terror! Keith Emerson also lends a hand with his dramatic and stunning music score.
The cast is great, attractive leads McCloskey, Miracle, and Giorgi being the best.
For Argento fans, Inferno is everything you could want! It packs all the delightful trademark style we have come to love from this great director. It won't be for all tastes, but genre fans may just find it to be a truly colorful and chilling gem!
**** out of ****
