Maestro Argento delivers gore & guts!
20 May 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

A grandiose, well-budgeted TV initiative to bring together the finest director-talents active in the horror industry of course isn't complete without any Italian input and thus prodigy Dario Argento delivers one of the coolest "Master of Horror"-episodes of the entire first series. Of all the episodes I've seen so far, "Jenifer" has the thinnest and most predictable plot, yet this is widely compensated by the amount of graphic sex, violence and pure perversion! The subject matter isn't anything like what Dario Argento usually brings to the screen (no elegant giallo-murders or anything...) but his stylish trademarks are definitely represented in "Jenifer", for example through the creepy and genuinely weird atmosphere and the petrifying music (by "Goblin" band-member Claudio Simonetti). The story follows police officer Frank Spivey who becomes obsessed with a young girl he saved by a narrow margin from getting killed by a deranged psychopath. The poor girl, who has a lovely body but a horribly deformed face, can't talk and Frank decides to take her home with him. After his wife and son left him, Frank quickly learns that Jenifer has an insatiable sex hunger but also some very disturbing eating habits... It's almost praiseworthy how Dario Argento cleverly avoids explaining all the improbabilities in story and simply keeps you entertained by lurching from one gory set piece to another. Where does Jenifer originally come from? Are none of the murdered people ever missed? The truth is you don't really care as long as the shocks are genuine and the gore is luscious! It takes a great filmmaker to get away with this kind of gigantic holes in the script, but Argento surely is one! The sex sequences are amazingly filmed, since they combine feelings of both excitement and disgust. Sick little film, I loved it!
