  • A Complex of Carnage


Argento's films assault the eye with incredible colour schemes, transgressive twists, and bloody human carnage - but that is merely the surface. In-depth analysis of Argento's narratives reveals an occult undercurrent seething with abjection, compulsion, paranoia, schizophrenia and sexual psychosis; A COMPLEX OF CARNAGE reveals and explores this buried syndrome of manias in four separate essays, and is illustrated with over 80 illuminating photographic images, including 40 in stunning full colour.
