      Audience Member Max V after a murderer; a naked prostitute; a bag of knives; that Argento music. But it's a confused opening; the acting's pretty ropey even for Argento. Max is good and I've got creative kills - including by English Horn - and some classic moments - but it's all a bit flat and lacks magic - somebody trying to do Argento by the numbers. Great rug camera pan, mind. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Later period Argento but as good as it gets from the master of the giallo! Highly recommended for giallo fans and people who enjoy a good, violent thriller. A personal favorite of mine. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie. It is pure Argento Giallo. If you aren't a fan of this genre it might be better to try Deep Red or Tenebrae, which are better and more accessible. I do think this is a great film, with the director using all of the tricks he has used throughout an amazing career, with the great Italian locations lending weight to the story and atmosphere. Some of the acting isn't the best, but the two leads are captivating enough to make up for it. Max Von Sydow is perfectly cast as the old detective as is Stefano Dionisi, who also wants/needs to find the killer. And finally the deaths and murders are in a class of their own! American horror film makers need to take note - this is how to film a slasher movie! If you like this, check out the aforementioned movies, but also check out Argento's early movies from the seventies which have great twists and the grizzly death scenes. Great movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Far from his strongest work, Non Ho Sonno is probably the best full length effort from Dario Argento in the last 20 years. The plot is a bit silly, the acting a bit questionable at times, but that's just part of the charm of a well done Argento film. On the plus side the film looks good and the Gore effects are in full swing. Recommended mostly for Argento completionists, but interesting enough that it could spark an interest in those unfamiliar with Argento's earlier work. 3 1/2 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Although almost nothing is left from Argento's visual and visionary talent, there still are some genuinely creepy moments, and if you're willing to oversee a few plotholes, it can make a more than decent whodunit thriller. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Too obvious of a giallo but it does have its moments with some decent gore (though it gets tiresome with the all woman killing/bashing concept) and a few fun red herrings thrown around. Not a good movie by any means and certainly not one of Dario Argento's finer efforts. Feels more like an early 90s horror movie...
