    Ingenious but relatively tame thriller.
  2. 63
    Argento keeps the suspense level high while throwing in trademark cringe-inducing moments.

    Argento fans lusting for a classy slasher movie of the "Suspiria"/"Opera" variety are headed for a disappointing rendezvous with an old-fashioned police thriller, upgraded by serious actors in the main roles.

    The film unfolds as a tired, thoroughly conventional police procedural that might as well be titled "CSI: Roma."

    The movie sucks. It's beneath Argento to be making such drek after so long a career. He's better than this.
  6. 30
    This oddly flat serial-killer picture shows none of the baroque flair that characterizes the best of Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento's work.
