It's all in the details. Argento exaggerates the nuances nearly, but not quite, to the point of distraction. His exorbitant use of red and blue lighting gives Inferno its other-worldly, nightmarish appeal which seems to make the horror more visceral and effective.

While it's nowhere near as fun or as well made as Suspiria, it's not a bad sequel. There's a lot to like: Flesh-Eating rats, cat drownings, a Guillotine death and one of the creepiest underwater scenes. I liked the idea of the story being dispersed through many characters instead of just one because the deaths are more shocking that way. It travels a lot farther into the bizarre than it's predecessor, which can seem wonky at times. Overall, it's an enjoyable film and has more exploration into the three sisters.

I like this WAAAAY better than Suspiria and I dun care whats peoples gots to say bout dat! I'm not saying it's a better film (I'd have to rescreen both multiple times to determine that) but I prefer it, and is under-rated for not being as popular as Suspiria. As usual for Argento productions, the sets and lighting are astonishing and beautiful. Unusual for Argento, this movie is quite plotted while also maintaining Argento's signature impressionist style. I found this story to be the most revealing of the "Three Mothers" trilogy. There is too much good to be said about this film. Favorite scenes: the submerged room in the cellar, following sounds through the elaborate pipe system, the library closing scene, the end sequence (which gives the film its name).
