The best Masters of Horror movie yet.,
This review is from: Masters of Horror - Dario Argento - Jenifer (DVD)
Wow what a sick movie. "Jenifer" by Dario Argento (Suspiria,Opera) is a film of passion, sexual addiction and blood curdling horror. The film follows the plight of a cop who stumbles apon a crazed man trying to decapatate a woman by a river. The cop proceeds to shoot the man and save the damsel in distress. Sounds like the beginning to a nice love story right?...no. The cop is shocked to discover that the woman is horribly disfigured, sporting a pair of huge black eyes and razor sharp teeth. After failed attempts to get rid of her, the cop brings her home where Jenifer displays her terrible manners by eating the family cat. This doesn't sit well with the wife and she leaves before losing her lunch. With the wife gone and being in a nice big house alone with Jenifer the cop soon finds that Jenifer is amazing in the sack. (except for a few minor turn-offs like her twisted face and the fact that she sounds like an elephant)He begins to find that he is hopelessly addicted to Jenifer's passion and as that addiction grows so does Jenifer's murderous hunger for blood. I really enjoyed this film. I found it to be a very unique and innovative story in horror. I loved the symbolic ties between the characters (The cop slowly having his life distroyed by sex addiction and Jenifer, the seductive sucubus who's disfigurement reflects in a way her own nature but also the horror that she enflicts in her victim's lives. I really recommend this for fans of horror who like their plots more left of the dial. watch it!
