    I watched this a couple weeks ago and I thought it was great. A very bizarre and beautiful visual experience. I love Argento when he plays around with color and set design, and thankfully INFERNO is like a dream gone haywire.

    The score was a big change from Argento's traditional Goblin fare, but I thought it did suit the film, and was quite good in its own way.

    INFERNO was definitely one of Argento's most ambitious projects (of the ones I've seen). There are amazingly long segments without dialogue (when the girl goes into that waterhole for instance), which all goes together to kind of reinforce the kind of uneasy mysteriousness of the entire premise.

    Not Argento's best, but definitely a very strong film on its own merits, and definitely works great as a companion piece to SUSPIRIA. Thumbs up from me.

    Yeah, I rather liked Keith Emerson's soundtrack. I was pleased to purchase it after viewing the DVD.

    I just had to buy it too. A lot of people expressed their dislike of the music in Inferno but I love it. I wonder who will do the music for the final chapter in the Three Mothers Trilogy?

    Yeah, I was rather surprised that so many people disliked the soundtrack! I thought it was suitably creepy, myself. I don't care who does the music as long as it matches the previous two. I'd hope for Goblin or just Simonetti doing it, but hey, if Emerson wanted to do it, I wouldn't complain. Well, unless the soundtrack sucked, but I wouldn't expect it to. ;)

    Aeon - technically it's a sequel to SUSPIRIA because it involved the second of the three mothers. There's no link in plot other than that though, and both films can stand up on their own (even though SUSPIRIA is far better IMO).

    Great observation. The similarities between the ending are obvious but I don't recall that quote. Now I have to watch it again.

    I haven't seen this film since ....... my last reply that was on page ... 32 :)

    think I'll pop it in again for a second viewing. I loved it the first time so the second should be better ...... right ? :D
