Another Blu-ray Dario Argento revelation. With Tenebrae (1982), the director's enthusiasts can savour, at their leisure, all the brilliant visual imagination of this Italian master of the horror film - nobody else in the field (not even Brian De Palma at his best) could (at that time) wield a camera with such elegance. Here, a contrived plot and perfunctory characters are effortlessly transcended by sequences such as the astonishing camera 'prowl' around the house of two murder victims. To the accompaniment of a pounding score by members of Argento's usual collaborators, Goblin, the director forsakes the supernaturalism of Suspiria and Inferno for a Hitchcockian plot involving a writer (Anthony Franciosa) plagued by a black-gloved murderer. Mention of Hitchcock is very relevant, as his ghost broods over the film (look at the sequence where Franciosa's agent John Saxon waits in a shopping precinct before a murderous knife assault: the steady accumulation of menace through innocuous sights and sounds - shoppers, children - is as brilliantly handled as Tippi Hedren's wait by the school-house in The Birds).
