Critic Reviews for Inferno
The narrative is incoherent, but the film's visual richness sustains it.
Just because it's not A-list Argento, that does not mean it cannot be an effective surrealist horror film.
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.
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.
Another good mystery from Argento. I want to watch it again, though, I wasn't giving it my full attention. But I did like the movie, it has Argento's style and a good amount of blood and gore.
