Описание: Питер Нил (Anthony Franciosa) - известный американский писатель, который приезжает в Италию рекламировать свой новый роман "Дрожь". Но кто-то не очень рад этому приезду, некий маньяк начинает убивать людей и запихивать им в рот страницы из нового романа. И конечно же не обходится и от угроз в адрес самого писателя. Первое убийство выполнено захватывающе - своеобразные маленькие римские дворики создают настрой некой тайны, странный преследователь пугает, а затем следует жестокая расправа - бритвой по горлу и струя крови. Очень впечатляющая сцена
Рецензии: I seem to be out of step with most Dario Argento fans. Recent re-viewings of 'Suspiria', one of his most praised movies, and 'Tenebre', one of his most criticized, had me totally changing my opinions. Both are flawed movies, but I now think the former is nowhere near as great as is often claimed, and that the latter is much better than its detractors say.
Argento is sometimes dismissed because his movies often seem like a series of elaborate set-pieces, generally spectacular murders, that never quite gell into a coherent whole. 'Tenebre' is more successful than most and has one of his strongest plots. It's essentially a murder mystery. A successful American thriller writer Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa - TV's 'Matt Helm') on a promotional visit to Italy, finds himself caught in the middle of series of murders seemingly inspired by his latest book. If you can guess who the killer is then you deserve a goddamn medal!
The one weak link here is the unusual casting of the dull Franciosa in the lead role. B-grade king John Saxon ('Cannibal Apocalypse', 'Enter The Dragon', 'From Dusk Til Dawn') is wasted in the minor role of Neal's agent. 'Tenebre' would have been improved 100% if he and Franciosa had switched parts. The supporting cast also includes Argento regular Daria Nicolodi ('Profondo Rosso'), and star of numerous Euro horrors (and the infamous 'Caligula'!) John Steiner.
'Tenebre' is clever, bloody and unpredictable. I loved it!
