  1. Psycoteraphy's rating of the film Inferno

  2. Core's rating of the film Inferno

    L'immagine dell'orrore - evidenza dell'orrore - che conquista e mischia lo spazio visivo e quello sonoro. La narrazione si decentra: la parola viene sempre dopo un'immagine e mai a spiegarla. "...e l'orrore è ormai la mia vita!"

  3. Paolo Utili's rating of the film Inferno

  4. HKFanatic's rating of the film Inferno

    Perhaps Dario Argento's most indulgent exploration in perverse dreamlogic. Much of "Inferno" appears formless and dull, shifting from character to character with the grogginess of an over-the-counter sleep aid, and yet I find it impossible to take my eyes off of. Moments here feel like the skeleton key for Wes Craven's original "Nightmare on Elm Street" and twenty years of puzzle-based survival-horror video games.

  5. VivianDarkbloom's rating of the film Inferno

    Dario Argento: master of horror/visual effects/sound/jump scare but not normal jump scare, an ART jump scare, betch. We stan a legend.

  6. Il calvario di un’anima perduta's rating of the film Inferno

  7. João R's rating of the film Inferno

    Visually stunning and engaging, but this second part of a trilogy has a savory flavor of disruption and discrepancy.

  8. Nachtreich's rating of the film Inferno

    Salvatemi da 'stammerda, meglio Suspiria.

  9. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Inferno

    A quite good follow-up to Suspiria

  10. lucia lurzo's rating of the film Inferno

  11. Rocco's rating of the film Inferno

    Suspiria’s visually darker and grander cousin adds minimal but interesting tidbits to the “Three Mothers” mythos. The images here are less flamboyant, but just as arresting, while the narrative feels more sluggish and impenetrable without a Jessica Harper-type lead to latch on to. The apartment building itself is a nightmarish, illogical, ever-shifting wonder. An unforgettable though garbled experience.

  12. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Inferno

    An ad hoc sequel to Suspiria, not as stylish as the real thing but stylish nonetheless. Occult practices, evil cats and more evil rats, deceitful architecture and – most importantly – innovative usage of knives and other sharp objects. Anything to keep you distracted from the background story because it truly makes no sense. But who cares when you’re in an art nouveau building with a murderous witch (or something).

  13. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Inferno

    "Inferno" has some fine examples for Argento's reflexive use of sound and music, e.g. the threefold appearance of Verdi's "Va, pensiero": The first time it appears during the musicology lesson at university where the camera sometimes "flies" (as reference to the text). The second time it is used during the taxi ride in Keith Emerson's instrumental rock version. And the third time it is played in the apartment ...

  14. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Inferno

    Like the same year's Maniac, and especially, the next year's The Beyond, Inferno is an avant-garde horror film. It's short on plot and with little story, yet the surreal nightmarish atmosphere is strung together with set-pieces that are ravishing to the senses and make the pulse race simultaneously. The neon lighting is gorgeously hellish, while the music is one of the loudest intensifying scores ever conjured.

  15. Matt Reddick's rating of the film Inferno

    A great example of this delirium was the scene of the crippled man trying to drown two bags of cats in shallow water, while wet rats run all over him. Then the Hot Dog vendor...

  16. William's rating of the film Inferno

    3.5 The warped creative sensibility of HG Lewis's best/worst moments carried out by a skilled visual stylist. The opening sequence with Irene Miracle creates a bizarre reality of its own.

  17. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Inferno

    I don't know why, but this film just gets better with age. I think I'm getting soft... Better than Suspiria?! Or Opera? Nah...

  18. rulesofachia's rating of the film Inferno

    "Ovid wrote about the fantastic terrors (and pleasures) of Transformations and that is exactly Dario’s aim in Inferno." - [Irene Miracle] When I first saw this, I hated it but now it's currently my favourite Argento film. For me, it forms the heart of The Three Mothers trilogy. I don't think it's nearly as incomprehensible as everyone says. The film is actually quite intricate with its own internal logic.

  19. FISCHER's rating of the film Inferno

    Le style et la démesure "Argento", une vision particulière et discutable de l'horreur. www.cinefiches.com

  20. Diego Ruscitto's rating of the film Inferno

  21. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Inferno

  22. RodrigoPereira's rating of the film Inferno

    Enfadonho e limitado (novamente?) pelo azul e vermelho já anteriormente vistos no Suspiria, que amo. Uma relação com a água mantém-se. Todavia, esta narrativa emaranha-se demasiado na rede desnecessariamente complexa de episódios vazios e dilatados, expectantes por um horror brega que não chega, aos quais um leque absurdo de personagens e a música (com excepção dos vocals em latim sobre as labaredas) serve e bem.

  23. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Inferno

  24. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Inferno

    (Generous) 7 - The dilapidated apartment building that serves as this film's setting might be Argento's most fascinating spacial and stylistic creation (and that is saying something). The film itself, however, feels like an inferior retread of "Suspiria" with an ending that borders on the inept.
