From master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria) comes Phenomena – one of his most eccentric and unique thrillers, featuring telepathic insects, maggots, and a razor-wielding chimp!
Jennifer Corvino (Jennifer Connelly, Labyrinth), daughter of a famous movie star, arrives in the so-called “Swiss Transylvania” to attend an exclusive girls’ school. However, a killer is targeting the pupils, and sleepwalker Jennifer finds herself in the assassin’s headlights when her nocturnal wanderings cause her to witness the death of a fellow pupil.
Aided by paraplegic entomologist John McGregor (Donald Pleasence, Halloween) and her own uncanny ability to communicate telepathically with insects, Jennifer sets out to track down the killer before she herself becomes the latest victim…
Released in 1985, towards the end of Argento’s decade-long golden age as a director, Phenomena features lush cinematography by Romano Albani (Inferno) and a pounding prog rock score by Goblin (Deep Red).
Presented here in a sumptuous new 4K restoration of the film and with a newly created hybrid English/Italian audio track on the full length 116-minute Italian version, this is the definitive release of Argento’s creepy classic.
A must for horror fans who want to see the film like never before.
