Friday Night Movie Night

After seeing Suspiria a few months ago, I added all of Dario Argento's films to my watch list, but only managed to get to the first one this week. Phenomena was such an awesome surprise, I really wasn't expecting much but I think it has jumped into favourites territory. There are a few different story-lines going on and you really can't judge it in 'Hollywood' terms, it is something all of it's own and I absolutely loved every moment. Without giving too much away, the story involves sleepwalking, a mystery killer, telepathy, the ability to communicate telepathically with insects, and a mutant of some description. Love to hear from any other Argento fans with recommendations!

I LOVE Dario Argento's films!!! they are not regular horrors, they are kind of surreal in a way...

Agree they are definitely not regular horror films! They are so stylized, he is so unique I cannot think of any other director that comes even close!
