    While this often features the evocative colour and framing of Argento's best (think Suspiria), its' key focus as a piece of surrealism isn't one of a nightmare. Instead you get to see the more banal horror of a desperately sad, everyday world, with the bizarre blending in around the edges in ways which make you question your own interpretations. Reaching an orgiastic peak of kinds with moments of religious symbolism, guignol, and unusually haunting analogy, the likely reaction is a mix of depression and disturbed splendour. The jarring tonal shifts in score only add to how unsettled I felt. As an auteur trump card and a stylistic melting pot, this makes a singular impression. 6 years 11 months ago
