TENEBRAE (unsane; shadow; sotto gli occhi dell'assassino) (1982 ITALY) D/W: DARIO ARGENTO P: CLAUDIO ARGENTO
Another overrated Argento giallo. Someone with the usual get-up (black gloves etc.) is killing people. Horror author Anthony Franciosca may be involved somehow. The celebrated long tracking shot is impressive, but also a perfect example of the Director's preference for visual style over human interest and story telling. With Daria Nicolodi (who's voice is dubbed by Theresa Russell in the cut English language dub), John Steiner, Giuliano Gemma (from many spaghetti westerns), Ennio Girolami, Marino Mase and an uncredited Lamberto Bava (First Assistant Director) and Michael Soavi (Second Assistant Director). An arm being sliced off is the gore highlight.
