The Bird with The Crystal Plumage and Suspiria are on my to rent list, but I don't have very high hopes for this director.

I saw Suspiria at a west end cinema back in the late 70's, a memorable experience, the stereo sound was so effective I kept looking over my shoulder, powerful use of sound to increase unease, you'd hear asthmatic breathing noises coming from behind or your sides and you can't help shifting in your seat you know, brrr.
I loved the weird Goblin score and immediately went and bought the album which I still have somewhere. Anyway it was downhill from there I wasn't as impressed with Argento's later output and lost interest in his work by the early 90's.

Posted Image Oh thats bollocks! I only posted a couple of Michael Bay Armageddon and Pearl Harb'ou'r screenshots in there, checked it out recently Zen me lad? The Spruce Goose currently appearing and before you cry fowl that's the Howard Hughes super plane.Posted Image

The only Argento I have on dvd is Suspiria, the super cool 2-disc special edition with booklet and postcards. I'm sure I still have Inferno and Tenebrae on vhs somewhere, with so many films piling up and my memory getting worse with age I no longer remember what I have.Posted Image
