Phenomena is a strikingly beautiful film filled with bugs, rock music and lots of blood.
Phenomena: A young girl, with an amazing ability to communicate with insects, is transferred to an exclusive Swiss boarding school, where her unusual capability might help solve a string of murders.
Jennifer Connelly is one of my favorite actresses and to see her in an Argento movie? Wow that was amazing because she did an fantastic job. I am not too fond of bugs and there’s ton of them in this film, but after the third or fourth watch I got used to them and did not find them disgusting at all. Some scenes were actually more beautiful because of the bugs.
The rock music is placed perfectly i Phenomena and the ending is not what I expected at all which is very positive, because Argento’s movies often lead into a very crazy and unexpected world.
Grading: 8 out of 10.
