Hi all!

I've seen Suspiria, Deep Red and Inferno (pretty long time ago on big screen, need to re-watch this one). A huge Huzzah for Suspiria!!! It's one of my absolute HG films ever. How can a director be inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and create a movie like this? I'm absolutely in love with the mad delirious colours of the Freiburg Tanzakademie. So sad that the house was destroyed. I wish I could live there (probably would have to join the covent of witches to survive a few days) . Inferno had that
freakin underwater scene and also fantastic lightning and music. Deep Red is a perfect giallo and the deaths are really awful and feel very real.

Was on the Darkdreams web site earlyer,the MOTHER OF TEARS title has been changed to THE THIRD MOTHER and it will be one of the highlights of the Cannes Fim Festvel.Argento has droped large portions of the script,cause it was'nt Frighting enough,and though the title should be The Third Mother for the fans of SUSPIRIA and INFERNO.Expect the final Three Mothers movie to be the best yet,as Argento is determened to show horror fans what HORROR should be


Cannes? Wow. Can't wait to watch the new one . Heard that Jessica Harper and Asia Argento are in the cast, true?

I beleive so and Daria Nicoldi Who was of Course Argentos muse and mother of Asia
Suspira is a masterpiece but i have a soft spot for Sleepless its well acted has some grusome deaths and is a huge return to form for the Master

Id loved to have seen Supiria&Inferno on the big screenbut the first was on VHS and Inferno was on Laserdisc far better than tape.Also loved the underwater scene at the start,and the old man killing the cats only to be killed and ate by rats.
You should see SLEEPLESS it is a Filmburner30 said,a classic Argento movie with the extra disc,jusj perfect.Let's hope we get to see THE THIRD MOTHER on the big screen.

Well Anchor Bay did have a crack at a big Release film with The Toolbox Murders Directed By Tobe Hooper .
And considering the Screenwriters of that are involved with the 3rd Mother maybe they should pick it up for UK release ,heres hoping

LONG LIVE ANCHOR BAYThere double disc remasters of classic Italian Horror are the best thing to happen to DVD.And al;so all the other remastered horror movies they have released,are just what the doctor ordered.The Region 1 INFERNO is by Anchor Bay,which i pre ordered,but hopfully they will release it on region 2 also.

They bloody better release it on region 2 because i havent seen it!!

Kira, can i recommend to you Trauma aswell, its more of a thriller than horror, but has lots of horrific scenes in it and lots of dark and mysterious goings on. It also has a certain Brad Douriff in it too!!

My Ultimate Argento boxset has been dispatched from Amazon!!

A female Argento fan! Wonders will never cease! In my experience it's only men who have 'got' his films. Very cool. And I'm so jealous you've seen not one but three of his films on the big screen.

Does anyone on who posts on this thread know what the situation is with Four Flies On Grey Velvet on DVD. I can't understand why this one has never been released. I've had a really crappy pirate video for ages and although not great Argento it has some superb scenes.

The "big" screen was really unspectacular. It was a Argento "retrospective" at a Uni film festival, bad sound, absolutely no atmosphere. And I doubt that they had official copies, probably just showed DVD or video. And yes, my gender was quite under-represented .

It must be a genetic defect. I forced my parents to buy me Count Dracula action figures instead of Barbies.

The ultimate collection is currently out of stock at play.com. But amazon still has it for
£17.99. Will order that one later.

Well its got Michael Brandon from Dempsey And Makepeace in it for a start and it is as you say ruddy difficult to get hold of,
Basiclly Brandons part is a man who accidentally kills a stalker and keeps getting photos from another unknown killer who begins to kill off his friends,
It also contains an apperance from Bud Spencer from all those Bud Spencer Terence Hill movies that cluttered up many Video shops in the 80S.Another task for Anchor Bay methinks

My Ultimate Argento boxset turned up today and i'm reading the back again and again and i cant decide where to start! I think i'll start with one of the 2 i havent seen so that would be Cat O'Nine Tails or Bird With The Crystal Plumeage. I'm getting over-run with horror because my Masters Of Horror part 2 should arrive tomorrow

I
agree. Also other Euro horror movies starred amazing actresses like Barbara Steele or Soledad Miranda .

Often those
"misogynist" arguments seem to come from people heavily believing in stereotypes like "Titanic/The Piano? Girls, go this way",  "Horror/Schlock? Sick blokes, join the other queue" ... gah .. go figure! It's just fiction. I want to be entertained, thrilled, scared and surprised. And I love to see innovative unusual stuff. Sadly enough many of the current mainstream productions don't fall into that category.

Oh how right you are At least directors like Argento try to be different each time they step behind a camera and why cant ladies like horror who wrote that crap rule

Argento was once asked about the way he potrays women in his movies,as victims,and he laughed saying it was not seen that way in the rest of EUROPE only in the UK press.Asia his daughter has stared in a lot of his movies,and has pointed out how much Dario loves women,and they get the best role in his movies.That said he has had his Actress x wife and daughter murdered in prety brutal waysin his moviesAll done in the best posible taste.It's good to know there are women who know the differance between a good Horror/Thiller and hollywood produced CRAP!Dario Argento is more an Artist than just a great film maker,and long may he continue,we've already lost Lucio Fulci and Mario Bava two brillant film makers of HORROR.

LAND OF THE DEAD was a great return to form for George,and i'd love to see what Argentos cut of DAWN OF THE DEAD is like.Romero was partly financed by Argento in return for editing rights in Italy,and of course George was more than pleased to have his Hero involed in his cult classic.

I'm sure i read somewhwere that Argento has decapitated his ex wife and Asia in a few films. Is this true? If it is, then fucking great! What a brilliant thing to do. "Hey Asia, in the next scene you get your head chopped off, hows that?" The man is a genius!

Hello,

I've only watched one film - The Stendhal Syndrome, and because Thomas Kretschmann was in it. I did like it though, I was surprised. I don't often enjoy horror - the story was good, particularly the ending.
If you are interested, I'd recommend the Italian 2 disc dvd - because the picture is so much better. The Troma dvd I got first (R1) was terrible.
In a film where the visuals, such as painting are very important, it kind of loses impact.
This is a relatively light portion of the film, but the dark bits are very cloudy. Still, you can see the colour & clarity difference.

WELCOME to Argento land,and where did you get your 2 disc Italian dvd from and for how much.I'd love to see the Italian release DVD's of the masters work,as of course it's his home land and the censor's are more fun loving.

Most people who buy from Italy seem to use this site... click 
However, I couldn't get my credit card to accept. So I ended up using this one - click
I had no problems.
The dvd also has a bit of behind the scenes footage - 20 minutes or so. Mostly of Asia and her father, shooting a nighttime street scene. The filming seemed very laid back and fun.

LAND OF THE DEAD was a great return to form for George,and i'd love to see what Argentos cut of DAWN OF THE DEAD is like.Romero was partly financed by Argento in return for editing rights in Italy,and of course George was more than pleased to have his Hero involed in his cult classic.


I watched Land of the Dead on big screen, just a few hours after a marathon run. It was very easy to identify with those zombies. It was like an
endorphine overdose.

No problem, it took me a while to figure out how to buy from Italy. It's a bit easier from France and Germany as they have amazon. Looks like a few of Dario's films get the two disc treatment there. 
I will keep an eye out for his films in future, from what I read the Stendhal Syndrome isn't the best of his work.

I bought another couple of dvd's that haven't seen light outside Italy, although they're kind of adventure or thrillers - they've also got a high gore factor. Close ups of intestines falling out and such when stabbed.
Perhaps the Italians have a taste for graphic injury in their films?
