When beautiful police detective Anna Manni follows the bloody trail of a sophisticated serial murderer/rapist through the streets of Italy, the young woman falls victim to the bizarre "Stendhal Syndrome" - a hallucinatory phenomenon which causes her to lose her mind and memory in the presence of powerful works of art. Trapped in this twilight realm, Anna plunges deeper and deeper into sexual psychosis, until she comes to know the killer's madness more intimately than she ever imagined.
Horror maestro Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA, OPERA) reaches new heights of florid fantasy and Grand Guignol with this warped work of art starring Maxim Magazine's "Sexiest Woman in the World" Asia Argento (LAND OF THE DEAD, XXX), Thomas Kretschmann (KING KONG, BLADE II) and Marco Leonardi (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 3). Previously edited outside of Italy, THE STENDHAL SYNDROME is now presented here in stunning High Definition, transferred under the supervision of cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno (ALL THAT JAZZ, AMARCORD) from the original Italian 35mm interpositive, and loaded with exclusive Extras.

While you can see he was starting to lose it just a bit, he still made a solid movie.
There however, Anna is struck by the Stendhal Syndrome, which makes her faint, when among certain works of art, like paintings and statues.
The transfer is hideous, barely better than video, washed out color, grainy, and horrible contrast.
Different to say the least, which made it entertaining for me.Published 2 months ago by Kenneth W Rudisill, Jr.
This movie was good for a horror film. The English dub was terrible, though. The actors clearly all knew English at the time this movie was filmed. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Matthew Yaksic

Great Argento movie certainly recommended, the only reason why it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the noisy blu-ray picture. Read morePublished on March 18, 2012 by .kramsie
This is one of my favorite Argento movies, but a horrible blu-ray transfer. Maybe the worst I've seen so far. Read morePublished on September 1, 2010 by L. R. Fenstermaker
Argento peaked with "Susperia", but this film is still worth looking at, even if it's only for the first half. Read morePublished on June 2, 2010 by Megan K. Donnelly
