A nightmare ALIVE!
Definitely one of the best horror films of Dario Argento Italian master in the 80 's (and in General) is the Phenomena of 1985. In this magical film Argento marries perfectly the supernatural element, surrealism, the mystery and the slasher by arriving in a surprising result.
The movie moves around from Jennifer Korbino (Jennifer Connelly), a young girl and daughter of famous actor, who troubleshoots sleepwalking. It also has a unique gift of communicating with insects. At her new school in Switzerland learns about some mysterious murders of young girls which have been committed in the region. She even becomes a murder witness of one of the girls at school. Along the way he knows a entomologo (Donald Pleasence), who is impressed by the gift of Jennifer and collaborates with her discovery of the paranoid killer.
The amiable chimpanzee who stars in the film, at some point during the filming, ran away to soylatsarontas nearby Grove. Was detected after a few hours and returned to the shooting.
With a first reading, the scenario seems strange indeed is. But these oddities "and the oddities is that elevate the movie, enriching it with wonderful atmospheric scenes. For example the eerie scene where the young protagonist sleepwalking on the premises of the school at night while the white box (something like hallway) enters the scene, charms the viewer providing an evocative image, full of magic and metaphysical overtones. The same can be said for the scene that Jennifer, in a crisis ' love ' to her classmates that harassed, appears before them as imperious "Lady of insects ' with her hair waving proudly, while outside the school have collected numerous insects to the delight of their mistress. And she simply says "I love you all." Actually the scene is top-notch and magnificent!
From then on there is the ntetektibiko place where two heroes join forces to find traces of the murderer, an act that poses risks because the killer is not eating koytochorto. In all this there is also a sympathestatos Chimpanzee (the ' pet ' of entomologoy) who is expected to play a much more important role than simply fills the roster. In short, the Phenomena is an excellent horror film with great features that fascinate and excite. Oh, and the soundtrack is also wonderful.
- The magical scene that Jennifer sleepwalking watching a white fantasy runway.
- The imposing scene of Jennifer evidenced "Lady of insects" as described above.
- The very strong and unpredictable finale. Watching scenes of great tension and gore mpolikoy.
- The amazing music of Goblin in the main musical theme, although the film has a soundtrack with many surprises like Iron Maiden and Motorhead!

The masterful combination of supernatural elements, mystery/slasher and serial killer motifs, surreal atmosphere, the escalating suspense for the finale, the wonderful music themes of the film.
Perhaps the limited range of suspects that makes the film fairly predictable compared with previous films of Argento.
