Tenebre

A FILM BY: Dario Argento
WRITTEN BY: Dario Argento
STARRING: Anthony Franciosa, Giuliano Gemma, Daria Nicolodi

A Part of MUSIC BOX OF HORRORS 2021 

Argento’s return to his giallo roots after veering off into gonzo horror/fantasy, Tenebre features Anthony Franciosa as an American author of potboiler thrillers who, promoting a new book in Rome, finds that a murderer is re-enacting his most ghoulish flights of literary fancy. Argento uses the occasion to scale new, dizzying heights of his own, employing bravura crane shots, brazenly baroque lighting, and the iconic moment of a razor slashing through white cotton.
