Visually engaging, but exceedingly incoherent: Dario Argento's follow-up to SUSPIRIA is a sequence of interesting ideas and atmospheric moments, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense overall. The underwater scene, for instance, is skillfully executed and probably the highlight of the entire movie, however, it ultimately leads to nowhere. INFERNO feels like an episodic nightmare, sadly with a rather underwhelming climax.
