“The process of writing and directing drives you to such extremes that it’s natural to feel an affinity with insanity. I approach that madness as something dangerous and I’m afraid, but also I want to go to it, to see what’s there, to embrace it. I don’t know why but I’m drawn.”

DARIO ARGENTO

BIOGRAPHY

In the early 1970s, maverick director Dario Argento cut a path across cinema screens to become a pioneer of the "Giallo" genre, the lurid, blood soaked style of Italian Horror that birthed the Slasher. Gloved serial-killers, ever shifting camera angles, over-the-top deaths involving windows, eerie electronic scores: these are just a few ingredients that concoct his unsettling, hallucinatory body of work. With a deeply influenced styled born by “Master of Suspense” Alfred Hitchcock and a directorial vision seemingly unbound by the rules of logic, Argento’s cinema experiments established him as an icon amongst Horror aficionados.
