Like Deep Red all the tension in Tenebre is lost when the rockin' score comes in.
Deep Red is a creepier movie though (making it better), Tenebre only seems concerned with the gore.


Is it just me or did Argento have/had a shattered glass fetish? Most murders in his movies concern broken glass.


7/10



SPOILER
 

This could possibly be the one time in cinema history in which a Giuliano Gemma character bites the big one.

I enjoyed this one enough. Not sure about the broken glass, but Argento had a fetish for heavy metal music in his movies. After DEMONS (he produced;1985) especially, movies like PHENOMENA and OPERA were brimming with metal music from both US and Euro metal bands.

Ahh I see Tenebre also features a wonderful selection of heavy metal rock for its soundtrack. It's interesting, though, to think about why Argento would think heavy metal had some sort of fearful quality... (does he use the Goblins for Tenebre too?) You'd think that by the beginning of the 80s he'd realize that heavy metal was more of a pop culture symbol of subversiveness...

No.
Odd. I want to consult the director's commentary for that reasoning.
