The Lightest Door into Darkness
28 February 2007 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

The third chapter in Dario Argento's "Door into Darkness" TV-series is undoubtedly the least impressive of all four. "Eyewitness" still contains some adequate moments of suspense and good acting performances, but the story overall lacks originality and effective surprise-twists. Especially if you've seen your share of thrillers and film-noirs already, the climax can easily be anticipated. The short movie opens with a thirty-something and attractive woman driving down a lonesome road at night and she suddenly has to brake for a girl who dangerously runs in front of her car. Roberta doesn't hit the girl, but she lies on the ground unmoving and bleeding. She notices that the girl was shot and that the killer watches her from the bushes. She flees and informs the police, yet when they arrive there's no evidence of a crime at all. The police inspector advises Roberta's husband to keep her under supervision, as she probably suffers from hallucinations. She doesn't, naturally, and she soon becomes the target of more stalking and attempted murder. Sure you can predict how it'll end, but Argento (uncredited as director) nonetheless maintains a good pace and a constantly ominous atmosphere. Marilu Tolo ("Django, Kill", "Candy") is very likable as Roberta and she gets good feedback from Glauco Onorato ("The Big Racket") as the friendly police officer. Riccardo Salvino is a bit wooden as her husband, though. "The Neigbor" is extremely tense and realistic, "The Tram" is fascinating & insightful, "The Doll" is odd and very creepy, but – finally – "Eyewitness" is rudimentary and rather mediocre. Recommended to Argento's fans, nonetheless.
