    Release Date:

    Generally regarded as one of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento`s finest films, the terrifying Tenebrae marked the director`s return to the "giallo" thriller genre in which he first made his name, after making two supernatural themed films, Suspiria (1977) and Inferno (1980). Shortly after American mystery-thriller novelist Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) arrives in Rome to promote his new book, an attractive young woman is murdered by a razor-wielding maniac who stuffs pages of Neal`s latest novel into the mouth of his victim before slashing her throat.
    So begins a bizarre series of horrific murders, the details of which strangely resemble the fictional murders in Neal`s book. Baffled by the killings, the local police believe the author may hold the key to solving the case and turn to him for help... A superbly orchestrated suspense thriller, Tenebrae is a shockingly horrific orgy of graphic violence, set to a pounding score by Argento regulars Goblin and beautifully shot by Suspiria cinematographer Lucio Tovoli. Uncut version.
