About Tenebrae

Italian horror master Dario Argento's 1982 film Tenebrae is a stylish and violent thriller that has become a cult classic among horror fans. The film follows an American writer who travels to Rome to promote his latest book, only to become embroiled in a series of gruesome murders that seem to be inspired by his work. With its striking visuals, intense violence, and pulsing score by Goblin, Tenebrae is a prime example of Argento's unique brand of horror. The film has been praised for its inventive camera work, including a famous tracking shot that follows the killer through a house, and its use of color and light to create a dreamlike atmosphere. However, it has also been criticized for its misogyny and graphic violence towards women. Despite these flaws, Tenebrae remains a must-see for fans of Italian horror and Argento's work in particular.
