Italian filmmaker Dario Argento s horror films have been described as a blend of Alfred Hitchcock and George Romero psychologically rich, colorful, and at times garish, excelling at taking the best elements of the splatter and exploitation genres and laying them over a dark undercurrent of human emotions and psyches. "Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds," which dissects such Argento cult films as "Two Evil Eyes," "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage," "Suspiria," and "Deep Red," includes a new introduction discussing Argento s most recent films, from "The Stendahl Syndrome" to "Mother of Tears"; an updated filmography; and an interview with Argento."
