From Amazon.co.uk

Dario Argento's sequel to Suspiria, his first and to date only American hit, is an even more incoherent nightmare fantasy. Laden with symbolic imagery and fantastic explosions of death shot in candy-colored hues, it's a bloody feast for the eyes. Mark (Leigh McCloskey), an American music student in Rome, rushes home to New York after a frantic phone call from his sister only to find an empty apartment and obscure clues about a supernatural presence in her spooky building. It all has something to do with the mysterious Mater Tenebrarum, one of the "Three Mothers" of Argento's murky mythology, and the fun house of an apartment house she inhabits, complete with a fully furnished underwater ballroom, miles of secret tunnels flooded in red and blue light, and hidden passageways under the floorboards. Meanwhile, there's a killer running around stabbing beautiful women for who knows what reason, a crippled bookseller attacked by rats, and a homicidal hot-dog vendor in Central Park. Why? It's best not to ponder such mysteries--Argento obviously isn't as concerned with making sense of his meticulously staged murders as he is with lighting them with just the right hue. Dramatically it's inert, a parade of quirky but faceless victims dispatched with elaborate care, but it's beautifully designed and executed, a spectacle of elaborate set pieces and magnificent decor orchestrated with a complete disdain for narrative logic. --Sean Axmaker

4.0 out of 5 stars A great package at a good price. 7 Sep 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Before purchasing this disc I read many reviews about the Arrow version and the Blue Underground version.
I also viewed many screen caps of the differing discs and personally I preferred the Arrow version.
This is a personal opinion and I'm sure many would disagree with me. It seems that 'Arrow Bashing' has almost become a national sport in this country.
Now I don't profess to be an expert on the differing quality in picture but I was pleased with the Arrow disc. Since buying I have had the opportunity to view the Blue Underground disc which a friend had and I am still quite content with my decision.
There have been versions of films by Blue Underground which have been much better than their Arrow counterparts ("Deep Red" being one example) and in that case I did purchase the Blue Underground disc.
But as someone who has been watching these films since the 1970's at the cinema and then on ropey VHS copies and then DVD I find the level of vitriol quite amusing. It really is making a mountain out of a mole hill.
Arrow have, of course, provided the buyer with a wealth of extras, as listed on previous reviews, as well as the usual 4 covers and poster, which I greatly appreciate.
It's true that Arrow do not always get it right but I do think they should be supported (along with the Shameless label) in making these films available in this country in affordable and collectable editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brief history of Inferno 18 May 2010
Format:DVD
"Inferno" (the Italian word for Hell) is the second installment in Dario Argento's "Three Mothers" trilogy and the follow-up to his classic, "Suspiria". The Three Mothers are a deadly triumvirate of witches that live in three special houses designed by an architect and alchemist called Varelli - Mater Suspiriorum (The Mother of Sighs) lives in Freiburg, Mater Tenebrarum (The Mother of Shadows) lives in New York and Mater Lachrymarum (The Mother Of Tears) lives in Rome.

"Suspiria" focused on The Mother of Sighs and "Inferno" mainly deals with The Mother of Shadows in New York but we do briefly see The Mother of Tears in some scenes set in Rome in "Inferno" as well.

"Inferno" begins in New York with a young woman called Rose Elliot (Irene Miracle) reading an old book called The Three Mothers by E. Varelli. She becomes intrigued by the legend of the witches and decides to try and find out more. What strange secrets does the large apartment building hold where she lives? Unfortunately, her curiosity leads to her being brutally murdered on a stormy April night. Before she died, Rose contacted her brother Mark (Leigh McCloskey), a music student in Rome, and he travels to New York to find out what is going on and ends up as bemused as the rest of us!!!

If there was ever a film where style spectacularly triumphs over substance then "Inferno" is it. This film is mainly just a series of amazing set-pieces with no real coherent, driving narrative but you end up not really worrying about the plot (or lack of it) because, first of all, the film looks so beautiful and, secondly, Argento is such a skillful film maker that he can tell a story purely visually and he can sometimes make even the most mundane scenes seem interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars I prefer it over Blue Underground's release. 25 Feb 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Being the huge Argento fanboy that I am, I ordered this Arrow Blu-ray along with my own country's version released by Blue Underground. After watching both twice, I personally prefer the Arrow, which surprised me because after much research on-line it seems most people prefer the Blue Underground. Even stranger, I've compared screencaps of both releases from review sites and actually preferred the Blue Underground version in the still images, but for some reason this Arrow release looks better in motion. I think the color palette plays an important part in conveying the atmosphere in this film, so it's very important to get it right. I found the Blue Underground's colors dark and bold (more 'horror movie' style) while the Arrow's were bright and almost neon (more 'dream-like'). Comparing the two, I find the Arrow's color palette suits the film better for me. The Blue Underground release seemed almost too dark in some places and the colors, while bold and beautiful, just weren't as bright and surreal as the Arrow's. I guess it's a simple question of if you like the dark, bold colors or the bright ones, but I know which one I preferred. I've also heard a lot of negative comments about Arrow's use of DNR, however there are a lot of scenes in this Arrow release that contain a good amount of grain in them so these accusations may be unfounded. I don't think they got carried away with the DNR--most shots just look cleaner, and as for the accusations the characters look "waxy", the flesh tones look fine to me.

I'll also add that the sound on this release is noticeably better than the Blue Underground, and I don't even have a sound system hooked up, just my regular TV speakers and I could still tell the difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Supernatural World of Inferno (Blu-ray) 17 May 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Not sure about the general audience of this kind of stuff today but I've been watching these films for over twenty years and have gone from sitting through terrible quality bootleg tapes (because uncut versions were not available in England at the time - censorship is nowhere near the problem it was, thankfully) through to Digital Versatile Discs (er, DVD to the general public), sometimes buying several editions of a film, and finally Blu-ray. I couldn't afford laserdiscs but gleefully read about those in mags like Dark Side, Is It Uncut?, etc - the approximate 400 line resolution of laserdiscs is now hopelessly outdated, but fans would eagerly pay anything up to 100 at film fairs for their favourites in presentations that far exceeded the quality of the then consumer champion of VHS.

Inferno is an pretty surreal tale of the uncanny, with a series of morbid events occurring that can make little sense in conventional terms, and even on multiple viewings you still wonder at the strangeness of it all. Not quite as bombastic as Suspiria, this is nevertheless an artistically experimental film with occasionally brutal killings and an otherworldly feel to what the characters are going through. It's not for all, but the movie has gathered a critically positive reaction over the years and is now generally considered to be a bit of a classic. Personally I tend to have a good time experiencing the admittedly slightly crazy middle section of Argento's Three Mothers trilogy.

Now, Inferno is one of those movies that I've seen in several editions and before buying I checked image comparisons between the currently available Blue Underground Blu-ray, and the Arrow equivalent. As the more diplomatic of reviewers put it, it appears to be a matter of taste what you might prefer.
