Inferno 1980
The second in Dario Argento's Three Mothers Trilogy, following Suspiria in 1977 and belatedly concluded with Mother of Tears in 2007, Inferno is an oft overlooked work from the director's glory days. Whilst Argento's trademark extended death sequences never quite reach the imaginative heights of Suspiria or Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) the film is a marvel to look at, with a number of unforgettable and truly macabre scenes.

Even for Argento the plot here is, by his own admission, full of 'riddles'. And that's no understatement. 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...
