I usually like Argento
Willing suspension of disbelief.

You've got to have that for a horror flick, but the characters in this flick have got to be the dumbest lot that Argento has created. After the first murder, the main actress calls the police but won't tell them anything about the murder. Then when a second character shows up, just driving around the city streets at night, she sits in his car, obviously distraught, but refuses to give any indication of what she has just been through.

The set piece where the killer is exposed is just as contrived, taking place in front of hundreds of people with no real indication that the killer would be at the scene.

Then there is the ending, totally out of joint with the rest of the film, where for a moment we get the hope of something original, ala the book version of Hannibal, but no, once again we are presented with brain numbing absurdity.

While the Anchor Bay DVD is beautiful, and we have a nice documentary about the making of the film, I think Argento says it best when he states that "After the movie he went to India for a while, because he thought he had made a bad movie." The documentary ends on that note, as does this review.
