Dario Argento

Dario Argento began as a screenwriter, penning (along with Bernardo Bertolucci) the Sergio Leone masterpiece Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). After its release, Argento wrote and directed The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970), an international hit that began his legendary career as master of the thriller (with films like Deep Red and Tenebre) and horror (Suspiria, Inferno), as well as fusions of the two (Phenomena). His often disturbing and horrific films possess a transcendent visual beauty that combines with his talent for weaving supremely menacing mysteries to create waking celluloid nightmares that burn themselves into the audience's psyche.

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage may not be as visually inventive as Suspiria, but it's more unpredictable and suspenseful and a pretty remarkable first film by Argento.
