Inferno is the second film in Dario Argento's "Three Mothers" trilogy. The other two films are Suspiria and Mother Of Tears. Suspiria is arguably one of the most influential horror films of all time and is regarded to be Argento's masterpiece by many... and so it's a tall order to follow that up, especially when Argento himself announced to the world that there would be two more films to come. Suspiria was a surreal and hallucinogenic nightmare of vivid colour and music. Inferno continues the visual beauty with rich colours and a dramatic score, but thats about all it shares with its predecessor. The story of Inferno is weak, with a brother searching for his missing sister. She had discovered the book of the Three Mothers and while trying to unravel it's mysteries she vanished. Thats really about as complex as the story gets. The plot development is basically non-existent. People wander around slowly and some spooky things happen. The dialogue is terrible and comes across as exactly what it is... that being an Italian writing a script in broken English. Perhaps it would have resonated more if he'd made it in Italian... anyhow Inferno is a visually strong film but there's little else to it.
