    Tenebre (Unsane) (1982)

    Taking place in a futuristic world, Tenebre is a more than successful return to the 'giallo' genre of films for Dario Argento. Close examination upon this film will show many subtle underlying themes which develop throughout, in a stylish, imaginative way. Like all Argento films, whether it be giallo or horror, there is a surreal quality to his work that decoys the viewer into a remote world of leisured contemplation and speculative fancy. Most of all, like all Argento films, the element of surprise built into Argento's signature climactic ending allows for the mysterious nature of all of his films to leave one shocked upon reaching its conclusion. One of Argento's best-- if not the best--giallo film.
