    Sorry, but no!

    I don't usually say this, but the plot twist but quite obvious, too early in the movie. His memories and hallucinations were quite straitghforward about that.

    Most of the reviews I read about this participation of the Master Argento in the series were not very favorable. I really do not know the reason for that. This is the best episode I've seen so far. Intense, disturbing (Jenifer is truly disturbing; excellent make-up fx), full of suspense (Argento is keen on creating this type of very heavy ambience), gory (too much gore for Argento, not that I'm complaining, but it's not his usual style). The icing on the cake is really the soundtrack by Claudio Simonetti (ex-Goblin), a frequent contributor to Argento's films. Fantastic entry in the "Masters Of Horror" series.
