Tagline: Terror that's hotter than hell!

Plot: A young woman stumbles upon a mysterious diary that reveals the secrets of "The Three Mothers" and unleashes a nightmare world of demonic evil. As the unstoppable horror spreads from Rome to New York City, this unholy trinity must be stopped before the world is submerged in the blood of the innocent. Written and directed by Dario Argento, Inferno is considerred to be the sequel to his classic Suspirin. This surreal shocker stars Irene Miracle (Midnight Cowboy), Daria Nicolodi (Deep Red) and Leigh McCloskey and features a pulse-pounding original score by Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

The tenants of a Manhattan apartment are terrorized by deadly spirits. Among other equally gruesome things, they are decapitated, clawed to death by cats, burned, and attacked by a knife-wielding killer. Another stylish horror opus from the incomparable Argento. INFERNO acts as a semi-sequel to his previous film SUSPIRIA (1977), involving the same witch-lore. This time around, there are a few very memorable set-pieces, most notably an eerie, breathtaking underwater scene. Stylish, violent, and classy all at the same

external linkThroughout the movie, all of the rich, vibrant colors surround the screen, like in Suspiria. ... It's my personal favorite from Argento.

external linkReally weak sequel to Argento's "Suspiria" has some nice photography, but less gore and no suspense.

external linkIf you have seen "Suspiria" you will immediatly notice similarities between it and Inferno. ... Even though there are similarites between the two films Inferno stands on its own and even though its not as masterul as "Suspiria" it is definately worth watching. 3/5
--Bradley Comstock (

external link...this movie was just too incredibly slow-paced for my liking. Not much was going on; just a lot of investigating. ... Only worth a check if you want to see continuation of the Three Mothers trilogy, otherwise pass. 5/10
