Dario Argento – Mother Of Tears

Dario Argento - Mother of Tears - 1

October is officially here. It’s a time for harvest and renewal but mostly this month is an occasion for scary movies. Dario Argento’s “Mother of Tears” has been released on DVD and it is a excellent place to start. Argento has been referred to as the “Italian Hitchcock” and the “Master of Gore” but it may be more accurate to claim him as the best director… period. Dario has some advice for those that think his work contains too much gore and violence, “Please don’t come to see my films.”
