A newspaper reporter and a retired, blind journalist try to solve a series of killings connected to a pharmaceutical company's experimental, top-secret research projects and in so doing, both become targets of the killer.
A young man tries to help a teenage European girl who escaped from a clinic hospital after witnessing the murder of her parents by a serial killer and they try to find the killer before the killer finds them.
Three years after the incident of the dance academy in "Suspiria", a new group of people are being watched in a New York City apartment building by a mysterious and evil force hell bent on revenge! When young poetess Rose Elliot finds out too much about the place (via an ancient book called "The Three Mothers"), she gets beheaded! The only person to stop the killings and uncover the secrets is her brother Mark, a music student in Rome. As he solves the puzzle, the murders get intense, and the demonic evil starts to reveal itself. As the unstoppable horror spreads from Rome to New York City, this unholy trinity must be stopped before the world is submerged in the blood of the innocent.Written by
Dario Argento once said that the gentleman who provided the live ants used in the film collected them by walking around in the park with a vacuum and literally sucking them up from the ground. He would later retrieve them from the vacuum bag once on set. See more »
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 »
Out of all of the horror films I have seen, there have one been a few that I found truely frightening. Suspiria and Inferno were among the few. The Cinematagraphy and the music in these films is extraordinary. I know a lot of regular film goers, people who take courses on analyzing films, I do by the way, and they love Argento's work. I see some reviews here bad mouthing the plot and the poor acting in Inferno. While I admit the actors are not spectacular the plot is there, it is simply not what you normally see. This is NOT a Hollywood film, this is not a plot driven film, like a lot of Argento films, this film's plot is more like the plot of a Nightmare. This IS a horror film and it IS very frightening and very well made. I am getting sick of all the Hollywood remakes myself, like this recent film "Decoys", while I have not seen this film, it looks like a Hollywood version of David Cronenberg's Rabid. But that's another subject. I recommend any Argento film to anyone also sick of the Hollywood films.
