Dario Argento was a new breed of Italian directors that appeared on the scene in the late 1960's with the Giallo form of horror filmmaking. Giallo's were detective style structures and mixed with horror. Argento dealt with Serial Killers very well. With Mario Bava and perhaps Lucio Fulci (stretching that one a bit), Italian cinema entered a "golden era" of horror gore and exploitation during the 1970's.
World of Horror shows the best of Argento's movies, leading up to Demon's, which he produced only. Most scenes are either "Death Scenes" or "Stylistic Shots". Anyway, there is some technical shots, but the movie does not really go into detail about the technicals of his movies. However, you get a dose on what happens in his noggin, and that in itself is scary enough. If you happen to find this movie on video (good luck), try it out, but good luck trying to find some of his movies on video (I'm still looking for his "4 flies on Gray Velvet")
