sine we has a new person among us I'ma go old school wit' sum trivia Very Happy

The first part (with Inferno (1980) and La terza madre (2007)) of a trilogy of films about the "Three Mothers".

Director Dario Argento composed the creepy music with the band Goblin and played it at full blast on set to unnerve the actors and elicit a truly scared performance.

Tarantino's scene in Sin City, the driving scene, was partially inspired by the lights Argento used in the opening taxi scene.

Director Dario Argento's original idea was the ballet school would accommodate young girls not older 12. However the studio and producer (his father) denied his request because a film this violent involving children would be surely banned. Dario Argento raised the age limit of the girls to 20 but didn't rewrite the script, hence the naivety of the characters and occasionally childlike dialogue. He also put all the doorknobs at about the same height as the actress' heads, so they will have to raise their arms in order to open the doors, just like children.

Dario Argento cast Jessica Harper as the lead after seeing Harper's debut performance in Brian De Palma's Phantom of the Paradise (1974).

Which is an awesome bad movie, with great songs.

yeah, I remember when remake talk first started it was rumoured that they would actually cast closer to the age Argento had originally intended. I'm not sure if that's still happening or if it's dead n the water.

I personally love his slasher mysteries the best, but no matter which film of his you watch he always has beautiful/interesting visuals.

I think this and Deep Red are my favorites, but that might just be because they're the ones I've watched the most. I didn't actually care for Inferno that much.
