Other than that, watching this was punishment to me. I wound up selling it a friend who collects horror flims.
Now I can see why this sat on a shelf for five years before it was released in the US. I personally would have just trashed it.
The dvds come in a very strong dvd case with two separate disc holders that don't look like they'll drop the dvd so they will be fine during shipping.
Both dvds look crisp and clear and the audio seems to be just fine (not to keen on that stuff).
Phenomena is about a girl who finds out she can communicate with insects, while she's at a boarding school where students seem to be dropping like flies. It's the movie that just so happened to influence the making of the original Clock Tower for the SNES, and if you've ever played it or emulated the game, the atmosphere is basically the same as the movie. Great movie, very fun.
Inferno is the sequel to the dearly beloved Suspiria. It's a movie that is HEAVY on atmosphere, relying on the color blue, and red (and it's combination, purple) to surround the whole setting, almost as if it were a dream, or better yet a nightmare. It doesn't have the same beautiful kills that Suspiria did, nor is the soundtrack as good but it's a worthy sequel. The biggest fault for this film though is how split up the narrative is, seemingly having no real main character till the second half of the film.
My biggest fault with this package is that there no subtitles for either film, which is something I hate not having. My hearing isn't bad, but at times I miss things that people say and having subtitles helps me keep up with the narrative.
Together this package was worth the 20 dollars I spent, and I'm happy with my purchase (seeing that this and rest of the Dario Argento collection DVDs seem to be going up in price). I say snatch it up when you see it for 20 dollars and make sure to check the description. Make sure people it's both dvds, none are scratched, all that regular things you check for in used dvds. If your shelling 20 dollars for a used dvd it better be in GOOD condition and not scratched up.
as well as the usual 5.1 Digital surround sound mix
much better picture and audio quality than the old Anchor bay release
plus theres 2 new interviews on this blu-ray version that were not on the Anchor bay release
and interview with Actor Leigh McCloskey and Irene miracle, both go for about 14mins each
they both talk about their experiences acting on the film set of Inferno, very interesting
plus the featurette with Dario argento and Lamberto Bava is also included from the Anchor bay release
so this Blue underground blu-ray version of INFERNO
is a much better release than the old Anchor bay version from years ago
Definitely time for an upgrade, scrap the old anchor bay release
and get this new blue underground blu-ray
Definitely worth the money.
i gave it 5 stars
In the end I just don't buy this as a decent or meaningful second act after Suspiria... most know that Argento's concepts of The Three Mothers trilogy just failed completely. Why did he even bother? It was a grand idea but he failed in pulling it off. Suspiria is a classic that should have just stood on it's own.
Re watching this I noticed horrible frame rate, instead of fluid movement there are many scenes where there is that lag type visual effect, I'll have to compare my DVD copy to see if it suffers the same problems. I'm not very impressed with this transfer.
I'm not a religious person, more of a humanist... believe in reality but once when watching this movie I had a weird experience while watching the ending. Typically I laugh at the lame ending but I was really paying attention to the vibe etc, when death shows up a very dark message kind of popped into my mind, "welcome death into your heart", now I was just relaxing playing my guitar like usual and not depressed or any other strange mental activity going on and it creeped me out to the point of wanting to toss all Argento's movies into the trash because of possible visual and audible masking of subliminal messages. Seriously weird... I don't want to welcome death in any form into my life while I'm still living. It makes me want to research possible subliminal masking in movies.
I've come to realize it's not so much Argento that I like but his cinematographers much like I concluded about Ridley Scott. If you observe his choice of cinematographers you can see a clear patern of visual art quality to his films. So in short most of what Argento fans atribute to HIS talents are actually the talents of the cinematographers and film editors. Take away his best collaborators and you get crap like Mother Of Tears, Phenomena and his other lesser works.
One thing about this movie that I found totally surreal and almost fantasy like was the lighting. The illumination in this giallo creates an ambient and nebulous setting, which is very unique. The light gels and/or set design in Inferno paint a mood in just about every scene. These moods vary from precarious (yellow) to foreboding (blue) then tranquil (green) to wrath (red) and back to enigmatic (purple). This type of movie making magic really plays a huge part in the film. I've shown Inferno to people before and they might not have liked the movie, but were impressed with the lighting and cinematography.
As for the plot, well it is somewhat lackluster. Mark, who is schooling in Europe, receives a letter from his sister Rose, who lives in New York. Rose's letter has a sense of bereavement to it, in regards to the apartment she is living. Rose believes that there are some clairvoyant or supernatural forces at work. Therefore, this sends Mark to The Big Apple to console his sister. However, this is the beginning of Mark's disconsolate hardships. He seems to be putting a puzzle together that doesn't want to solved.
Inferno might have to be witnessed more than once to fully digest what has transpired. However, I have seen it about a dozen times and I still don't know if I fully "get it". In other words, the movie can be a bit confusing. There are also some parts of the film that "drag on", but it doesn't take away from the overall effect of the movie. One of the best scenes is the underwater sequence, which is just plain eerie. There is one scene that involves cats. I love cats and having them as pets, might make this scene a bit hard to watch. Nevertheless, many aspects of Argento's films have a "pseudo-fake" quality about them, so you always know in the back of your head that what is happening on the screen isn't real.
As formally noted, Dario Argento's "The Three Mothers" trilogy is currently uncompleted. However, the third film is supposed to be completed and released by October 2007. The name of the movie is "The Third Mother". I do hope this is fact and not a rumor.
