Dark Glasses is the latest release from the legendary Dario Argento. Diana (Illenia Pastorelli) is a high end escort who is blinded in a car accident. The person who caused the crash has been murdering call girls and is out to add Diana to their list.
Those who feel like Argento’s days of making good films have long passed will feel satiated immediately. Arnaud Rebotini’s amazing score is reminiscent of previous works. Argento’s decision to return to giallo was also wise as he has a feel for the genre.
Aside from the music, Dark Glasses is very much a throwback. The lighting, killings, and setting will all be familiar to longtime fans of Italian horror. The film has a tendency to get a little silly at times, but fans of Argento will be glad to see the master back in his natural element.
Dark Glasses is screening at the Fantasia Festival
