These "October Horror Movie Challenge" threads are for the discussion of the films in the 31 FILM SUBSET list.

The plan is for everyone to watch this film on the October day in the thread title, and to start discussing it the morning of the following day.
You may start discussion early if you want, but the preferred plan is for this to be as much of a group exercise as possible, with all of us viewing it "together" and discussing after.

Of course, you are totally encouraged to participate in these threads even if you haven't watched the movie on the designated day.
Even if you haven't watched it in years, or are not participating in the Horror Challenge, please feel free to chime in.



Spoiler tags aren't always used in here, so if you have yet to see the film BEWARE OF POSSIBLE SPOILERS.

Re: "Tenebre" Reviews/Discussion - 2018 Horror Challenge

Sometimes it's spelled Tenebre and other times it's spelled Tenebrae. Tenebre means 'darkness' in Italian and Tenebrae is a religious ceremony where candles are gradually extinguished towards darkness. Synape and Arrow releases call it Tenebrae and the book within the film is spelled Tenebrae; but I guess both spelling are nearly the same thing. For a while I was concerned I was horribly mis-spelling the film no matter how I spelled it.

What a great soundtrack and the Synapse blu-ray looks excellent. Argento loves panning sweeping shots here and the camera motion works so well for giallo like a leering uninvited glimpse into the murders. The music is upbeat enough to be inappropriately matched for the grim proceedings, which makes it more awesome.

Not dead yet then death by modern art sculpture - some of the elements in Tenebre and cheesy but so well executed.
