Did You Know?


Was originally proposed as an unofficial finale to Dario Argento's then-incomplete 'Three Mothers' trilogy. Originally a script draft was written by Dario Argento's ex-wife Daria Nicolodi, but producer Dino De Laurentiis (whom she gave the script to) wasn't interested and Argento (who originally was supposed to direct) moved away from the project and focused on his next movie 'Tenebrae'. A few years later, Nicolodi gave the script to her friend Luigi Cozzi, wanting him to turn it into a movie. Cozzi decided to do it but didn't want to make a straight sequel to Argento's 'Suspiria' and 'Inferno', so he re-wrote the script into something that is more of a tribute to the two Argento movies. Nicolodi (who originally was supposed to star in it) realized that Cozzi's version was not what she had in mind, and so she left the project. See more »

Suspira it is Not
11 January 2006 | by CMRKeyboadistSee all my reviews

Where can I start with this movie. Okay, this movie has had many titles such as "Demons 6", "The Black Cat", "Armaggedon", and the list goes on. None of the titles for the movie make any sense.

The movie starts out with a director planning to make a film about a witch called "Levana". His basis for the movie is based off of Dario Argento's "Susperia". The director decides that he is going to cast his wife as the lead in the movie. Well, apparently there is a real witch named Levana and she is not to happy with this whole project and decides to make the directors wife a living hell.

The main problems with this movie are continuity and pace. I will admit that this is a very atmosphere flick but the whole movie still falls flat on its face. There are so many moments in this flick where I had to say out loud "What the hell is going on?". For instance, many scenes just tend to wander off in to space. Literally, the camera has shots out in space and on the moon. This has nothing to do with what's going on in the movie and if it does, someone correct me because I haven't figured it out.

The pace of the film would seem to at points move farely well but for the most part the scenes just start to drag and you could care less with what's happening. The beginning of the movie is a prime example. The characters are introduced and the story starts to develop but then things just start to fall to pieces right before your very eyes.

The acting in the movie is rather humorous at moments. A certain scene when the director and his assistant meet the man who wants to produce the movie is rather hysterical. And almost all of the scenes with Lavana in them are laugh out loud funny.

I think the main thing that saves this movie is a decent original score (I'm not talking about the bad hair metal in the background) and a few moments of gore. It seems that the director of the movie (Luigi Cozzi) still loves to have people having their organs blown to pieces. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, watch Contamination.

All in all, could have been a much better film. 4/10 stars
