★★■

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

Stars: Adrien Brody, Em­manuelle Seigner

Di­rec­tor: Dario

Ar­gento

Avail­able: On DVD

You have to ad­mire Ital­ian hor­ror mas­ter Dario Ar­gento and his com­mit­ment to the genre, even if he has to look in his rear- view mir­ror to see his best works. This se­rial killer thriller fol­lows a sadis­tic so- and- so who likes cap­tur­ing and do­ing un­speak­able things to pretty women, and be­comes the ob­ses­sion of Adrien Brody’s gloomy cop­per char­ac­ter. While there is the odd scene that prom­ises a bet­ter film, the script­ing is weak and it’s more akin to modern Hol­ly­wood gornos than the arty ‘‘ Giallo’’ hor­ror sub- genre he made fa­mous.
