Inferno (1980)
106 min.
Directed by Dario Argento.
With Leigh McCloskey, Irene Miracle, Daria Nicolodi, Elenora Giorgi, Alida Valli, Sacha Pitoeff, Gabriele Lavia, Veronica Lazar.
Just forget about the plot, for this has got to be one of Argento's most confusing films ever.

But that's not why you're here anyway. Instead, enjoy the usual directorial flair for which he's known, as well as a couple of wonderfully gruesome murders, and a set design that's out of this world.

Leigh McCloskey plays a man who returns to New York after his sister has been murdered, and stumbles upon the work of some evil witches.

With a memorable score by Keith Emerson.

This was the second outing in Argento's Three Mothers trilogy. Suspiria (1977) was the first installment, while the final entry Mother of Tears was released in 2007.
