      Geoff Andrew Time Out Unpleasant even by contemporary horror standards. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine Tenebre is a brilliant piece of self-reflexive cinema. Rated: 4/4 Dec 4, 2001 Full Review Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat The mystery is compelling, the horror is effective, and the visual style is captivating. Rated: 3/4 Oct 16, 2023 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk at once an over-the-top roll in all the most gruesome and outlandish of Argento’s preoccupations (beautiful women being graphically slaughtered, relentlessly roving camerawork, a bombastic musical score) and an aggressive defense of them Rated: 3/4 Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Argento delights in tripping up audiences with startling plot twists, thematically rich analyses, and bursts of extreme violence. Rated: 3/4 Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed The film is a classic and one more than worth watching. It’s a solid giallo entry by a master that helps shows why Argento is considered as such. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 30, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      B P Story points aside Tenebrae is still one of Argento's best Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review harwee h A mid-Argento movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Alec B One of Argento's most audacious efforts. The meta commentary works (its kept to a minimum) and the final twist is actually surprising. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Jon N As always, Argento directs with style. A scene where bright red blood spurts against a white wall, and one where the killer is revealed to be standing behind another character but couldn't be seen are perfection. While maybe not as memorable as some other Argento movies, this is still a great movie that I would definitely recommend. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review lord b DArio Argento delivers again!!!! One of best slasher flix ever aka Giallo films in italian movie slang. They should have given star wars to Argento not traitor and cultural vandal diane kennedy. Overlord dvd youtube would probly agree. I need to do my own good taste youtube. Culture died 1989 with all the anti white racism and anit str8 white male racism sexism. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/09/23 Full Review John A Not as mentioned as Argento's other films but I'd say this certainly has much of the skill found in the auteur's well-known highlights. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
