truemythmedia’s review published on Letterboxd:
This film is considerably faster paced than some of Argento's other movies, but it still has that trademark atmosphere and flair. Argento also has a tendency to make the murders and situations in his movies a little farfetched, sometimes they even come off as funny. It’s all a matter of opinion, I suppose- some might see the schlockiness of the films and see them as cheesy and ridiculous. But for me, those bizarre aspects are exactly why I keep coming back to Argento. He’s a director that knows how to keep you guessing, even if his films are unpolished and at times they feel cheap or ridiculous. Argento isn’t trying to make a realistic thriller that’s grounded in reality; he’s trying to entertain you. You might think you know what’s going to happen next but half the time the actuality is infinitely more absurd than anything you might imagine.
