In this suspense thriller, a man with amnesia finds that the more he remembers, the more dangerous his life becomes. A man (Ray Liotta) stranded in a desert wasteland awakens with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Looking for shelter among the burning sands, the man finds the home of Vicky (Gloria Reuben), an artist. Vicky takes him in, and with her help, the man begins to reassemble the shards of his memory in an effort to reconstruct his past. He eventually remembers that his name is Jack, and that he recently came into a large amount of money, which he can't find. However, it takes a while for Jack to realize that he was a gangster, and that several of his old business associates want to see him dead. Inferno was also released under the title Pilgrim, and features Armin Mueller-Stahl, Daniel Kash, and Lisa Owen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Inferno
Just because it's not A-list Argento, that does not mean it cannot be an effective surrealist horror film.
the ending, while certainly fulfilling the title's promise, disappoints with its cheap parlour tricks and cheesy Halloween costumery.
This film is a fascinating and frustrating phantasmagoria of the mysterious and the unexplained, a strange journey into realms beyond human understanding, where events happen without rhyme or reason, and little or no explanation is given.
Visually striking, utterly incoherent, largely enjoyable.
[Argento's] stories are not supposed to make sense, but we can at least ask them to be watchable.
Audience Reviews for Inferno
It's all in the details. Argento exaggerates the nuances nearly, but not quite, to the point of distraction. His exorbitant use of red and blue lighting gives Inferno its other-worldly, nightmarish appeal which seems to make the horror more visceral and effective.More
Creepy and stylish but slightly lacking that Dario Argento flare. Gaillo is where his real strengths are and thankfully that's what he stuck to after this but Inferno does have some very memorable scenes - it's just a little bit dull in places.More
The sequel to 'suspiria' is somewhat dissapointing, not only because it gives all the importance to style than plot (a constant in italian cinema) but because the plot doesn't make any sense, the so called characters could have been played by puppets, they're flat entities, figures used as excuse for later mutilation, in common or unimaginative ways. Only in a few aspects one can appreciate the talent behind Argento, his visual storytelling (relying more in pictures than dialogues), the kaleydoscopic cinematography; and the weird, nightmarish atmosphere.More
