Phenomena


After an unbroken run of excellent Giallos alongside an unbroken run of excellent supernatural horror movies Argento was clearly stuck as to which he should make next, so he tried to make both at the same time and succeeded in neither. And yet despite this it's still easily my second favourite movie featuring a homicidal simian. Yes, second favourite.

  2. Phenomena's great in its own way. Not brilliant, as you say, but probably the most fun I've had watching an Argento film. It's just such a weird premise.
