Part 2 of Dario Argento’s Three Mothers trilogy, Inferno has some standout, influential scenes and is bathed in the usual colours of red, blue and black that are staple in his seminal films. There’s also the trademark ‘complex mystery, bathed in blood’ as a brother – Mark (Leigh McCloskey) – searches for his sister, Rose (Irene Miracle), who has vanished from her apartment in New York City. There’s witchcraft..there’s a spooky building…beautifully staged brutal murders…and a marvellous cat.

One of the biggest jumps is in a wonderful underwater sequence where Rose discovers a water-filled ballroom in her building – of course – and accidentally drops her keys into it, so she has to swim down…whilst a body floats up.
