Dark Glasses (Occhiali Neri): Argento’s New Horror Flick

Dark Glasses (‘Occhiali neri’): Berlin 2022

The latest slasher flick from Italian horror legend Dario Argento (Suspiria) follows a blind woman on the run from a sadistic killer.

Italian giallo maestro Dario Argento, who turned 81 last year, makes a return to form in Dark Glasses (Occhiali neri), a rather sentimental schlock horror, which that world premiered at the 2022 Berlin Film Fest.

The slasher features several stylized set-pieces and a script that rehashes the usual Argento elements — pretty girl victimized by vicious killer, incompetent Italian cops — into a movie that’s both ridiculous and endearing, capturing the Suspiria director at his softest.
