In Rome, American horror novelist Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) finds that someone is copying passages from his book "Tenebre" in real razor murders. The rest of the plot is complicated and pretty much dispensable. It serves merely as a clunky, coincidence-driven device to string together a series of sexual and violent images that often involve beautiful women in some stage of undress. The silliness of that side of the film is balanced against Argento's inventive camerawork, which alternates between careful attention to extreme close-up detail and long, complex tracking and crane shots. This film has also been released in America, in a shorter version, as "Unsane."
