Anyone who reads this site is familiar with my love of Dario Argento - even some of his later stuff. So I'm very much looking forward to another thoughtful dissection of his work. So much has already been written on the subject, but I feel like there's plenty more to talk about.
Finally there's a piece of news today that sparks my own personal interest. It sounds dark, atmospheric and creepy - all of the requisite things I look for in a horror movie. Even the title sticks in your head: Berberian Sound Studio. Here's hoping this one delivers in spades.
2011 is shaping up to be a great year for Dario Argento fans. Not only are we keeping our fingers crossed that Dario will recapture some of his old magic in his upcoming Dracula 3D, but Blue Underground is bringing the maestro's most classic works to Blu-ray in stunning 1080p splendor.
Of all the genre Blu-ray titles that have been announced, here's one I never would have expected in a thousand years. But it seems like MGM knows there's a devoted following belonging to the 'best worst movie' of all time, Troll 2, and very soon you'll be able to view it in high definition.
Do I smell a resurgence of Italian horror on the horizon? I certainly hope so because it's been far too long since the Italians have been busy in the horror genre. First time filmmaker Paolo Fazzini is looking to put the boot back on the map with this one, folks. Fingers crossed!
