Phenomena (1985)

FCD454_Inferno_DVD_Slip.inddPhenomena is a strikingly beautiful film filled with bugs, rock music and lots of blood.

PhenomenaA 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.
