Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Never heard of Suncoast but I got two BestBuys and I aint seen a single one in there and by now I know there inventory better than they do.

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

By the titles in the poll I say:

suspiria
inferno
opera
tenebre
sleepless
bird with the cristal plumage
four flies on grey velvet
(I'm not much into the Argento's giallio side)
I haven't seen Do you like Hitchcock yet

I'm surprised that deep red is not in the poll

I agree with you horror virgin; my all time fav beyond athe shadow of a doubt
The theme scared the crap out of me,and also now it gives me goosebumps!
Suspiria is going to be remade?
I only hope they won't ruin the flick

I can't wait for "The third mother" to come out!!

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Sorry shrimp I've mistaken your nick
I'm with you about Depp Rep anyway ...:)

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

I forgot about Deep Red. I have the unlimited vhs edition of it uncut and it's a great film. I can't believe I forgot to add that to the poll.

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Suspiria is also my favourite and again Deep Red is my second favourite

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Suspiria hands DOWN!!

I am sooo jazzed for the third and final part of the Three Mothers trilogy: Tierza Madre!! 

The reviews for it have been excellent and I've been dying for this film to come out for eeons!! 
Rest assured, any hardcore Suspiria & Inferno fans HAVE to see the series finale!!!

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Tenebre, for me, and by far.  Bloody, mysterious, shocking, and a precise lead performance by Anthony Franciosa.  I never guessed the ending, didn't even see it coming, and the double twist works very well.

Second would be Opera, followed by Inferno and Stendhal Syndrome.

Yeah, I really liked the arm amputation in Tenebre!  Classic!!!

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

To Hard to  choose Null for me
Bird with the Crystal Plumage - Great movie, Great Twist (Anyone else like this movie ? )
Deep Red - Creepy doll, Great Death scene
Susperia- Very Good
Phenomena AKA Creepers- Great movie

Not seen others

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Deep Red is my favorite of the ones of I've seen, followed closely by Suspiria in second place

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Why wasn't XXX on the list?  I thought she made a fine love interest for Vin Diesel.

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

i gotta go with Suspiria, the shots the beautiful sets lighting and awsomely creepy music make this a masterpiece!!  but its the only one of his movies i have seen except MOH Jenifer and it was awsome too

you could always subscribe to Netflix, i have Inferno and Tenebre on my queue

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Suspiria to me, all the way with the bright lighting with red, green and blue mix in with The Goblins score makes it a masterpeice.
Deep Red close behind it, i think other than Asia, David Hemmings is another actor that Argento worked with delivered good acting in one of his movies.
Bird w/ a Crystal Plumage is one of the best giallo's movies with one of the best overlooked twist endings.
And my first introduction to discovering Argento was Phenomena aka Creepers, similar in a way to Suspiria with a young lead actress and instead using bright colors in this, he used more natural lighting for this which i think brings it out beautifully.
I was very disapointed that there wasnt a Four Flies on a Grey Velvet out there that i can view and is one of the movies i need to complete my Argento Animal Trilogy collection, i hope Paramont choose to release this on dvd.
Last time i heard like a year ago that Paramont have the rights to the film and said they have no plans to release it and im disapointed in that.
Other good ones are
Do U like Hitchcock?  Argento's tribute to Hitchcock's Rear Window
and Sleepless was another good giallo film as well.

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

Does anyone else on here like Sleepless? I thought it was a pretty good and gory slasher style film by him from the 90's and had some great kills in it.

Re: Your fave Argento flick?

I have Sleepless but I have it as Nonhosonno and it's uncut. Thats a good one with Max Von Sydow. The kids mother gets killed by the dwarf killer...
