On the 25th of January, there will be a screening of Tenebrae at the Film House Edinburgh.
Set some time in the near future, in a city affected by an unnamed disaster which has left its population wealthier and less crowded, an American writer crosses paths with a deranged serial killer, taking on the role of investigator while teaming up with a detective. Quintessentially Argento, this beautifully brutal flick contains what Tarantino has called his ‘favourite on-screen murder’. But to balance the treatment of women, there is some gloriously graphic male murder by female devices in the mix. And the synth-prog soundtrack by Goblin is a masterpiece on its own.
