Dario Argento's "Tenebrae" is widely regarded to be one of the director's best films. Shot between "Inferno", his 1980 follow-up to "Suspiria", and his personal favourite film of his, 1985's "Phenomena". "Tenebrae" is his 1982 return to the giallo subgenre and is out now in the UK on a special edition BD/DVD combo pack.
This infamous video nasty updated the classic Giallo blueprint for the gorified 80s, courting controversy and drenching the viewer in crimson arterial spray.
A razor-wielding psycho is stalking the horror writer Peter Neal, in Rome to promote his latest work, Tenebrae. But the author isn't the obsessive killer's only target, the beautiful women who surround him are doomed as one by one, they fall victim to the murderer's slashing blade...
Will fiction and reality blur as fear and madness take hold? Watch in terror as by turns the cast fall victim to the sadistic imagination of Dario Argento, Italy's master of horror.
