Director: Dario Argento
Dario Argento is an Italian film director, producer and screenwriter. He is best known for his work in the horror genre, particularly in the italian subgenre known as “giallo.” His influence on modern horror and slasher movies is far reaching and widely cited. Having worked with Sergio Leone and George A. Romeo, Argento’s impression is certainly not limited to films he himself directed.
The themes of Argento’s movies typically involved psychological disturbances, supernatural events, and a plot driven (at least in part) by mystery. Another part of his distinct signature included memorable score from the band Goblin.
