Dario Argento continues to shock with this sleek horror

Tenebrae review

A self-reflexive Giallo bathed in hard, glistening light, Dario Argento’s former Nasty is one of the apexes of ’80s horror.

A pulp mystery about a pulp mystery writer (Anthony Franciosa) threatened by a crazed fan, it delivers hyper-stylised sex and violence and remains the master’s most thematically consistent work.

The 2½-minute tracking shot of a double murder is, rightly, legendary, and the film combines crimes passionel with clinical futurism to unforgettable effect.

With interviews, new cover art and an Argento doc, the disc is as sleekly alluring as the film.
