Storyline

While parked in a remote spot lunching Chinese food with his partner, Detective Frank Spivey saves a disfigured woman called Jenifer from being sliced with a meat cleaver by a deranged homeless man. He feels sorry for the retarded Jenifer, and takes her from an insane asylum and brings her home. Frank becomes obsessed for Jenifer, feeling lust and attraction for her lascivious body. When he realizes that she is a human beast, he moves with her to an isolated old cabin in the woods, with tragic consequences. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Can we really call this a return to form for Dario Argento?
25 October 2007 | by (Venice, Italy) – See all my reviews

Being a great fan of Dario Argento's works, I've been watching his latest movie with growing pain, as they invariably are unsatisfying, if not close to laughable. The Phantom of the Opera, I Can't Sleep, The Card Player, are all nothing more than big missteps from the man who gave us Deep Red, Tenebrae and Inferno. I was really happy, then, when I started reading enthusiastic reviews for Argento's entry to the Masters of Horror series. But, is the result really a return to form? Not really. The movie in itself is actually much better than Argento's latest works; but, that said, where's the originality? I was quite shocked by the fact that Jenifer's storyline is copied, completely, from the idea behind Raoul Servais' Harpya, a 1979 short animated movie. Point is: Harpya is a small gem of a movie, frightening, enigmatic, haunting, a Kafkaesque nightmare; whereas Jenifer is just an above-the-average TV horror movie, with some good moments, but overall bland and dull.
