Argento takes revenge on the giallo genre he perfected
Okay - expand on that - why did you make this your staff pick?
This is Argento's best film - best score, best set pieces, and it's extremely meta, about what happens if your fictional creations seem to become real. Argento spent the 70s making increasingly elaborate giallo (Euro-thriller/horror) films, and implodes it all gleefully in Tenebre.
