Though Argento's plot is often confused and grotesque, he has a remarkably energetic visual style (mobile camera, slow-motion, careful lighting, creative editing) that is never boring.

so over-egged is the story with police procedural, insect science and paranormal events that squaring the circle of all these clashing frames becomes a disorienting thrill with heady pleasures of its own.

Worth catching if you're a hardcore Argento fan. Otherwise, pass.

... Phenomena works best when viewed as a contemporary fairy tale.

Between shots of stunning mountain scenery there are paranormal breezes, unfeasibly bright night-lighting and buckets and buckets of maggots.

If the Devil is the Lord of the Flies, what does that make Jennifer Connelly as a disturbed teenager who can telepathically communicate with the buzzing buggers?

The best acting is by an expressive, resourceful chimpanzee - definitely the year's Best Supporting Primate.

Don't expect logic -- and don't expect anything remotely approaching reality -- and you'll be OK.

Phenomena (a.k.a. Creepers) provides what is alternately Argento's most batty and spiritual landscape.
