A newspaper reporter and a retired, blind journalist try to solve a series of killings connected to a pharmaceutical company's experimental, top-secret research projects and in so doing, both become targets of the killer.
A young man tries to help a teenage European girl who escaped from a clinic hospital after witnessing the murder of her parents by a serial killer and they try to find the killer before the killer finds them.
Riddled with secret but horrid suspicion, the young American poet, Rose Elliot, writes to her brother and musicology student in Rome, Mark, about the startling findings in the dark and dank basement of her New York Art Deco apartment building. Pivoting around the cryptic knowledge hidden in the leather-bound book entitled "The Three Mothers", Rose is convinced that her aristocratic but damned abode is, in fact, an ancient coven for Mater Tenebrarum, the malevolent Mother of Darkness. Little by little, as the siblings delve deeper and deeper into the occult, a mysterious disappearance and an endless string of gruesome killings will bring Mark closer and closer to a surreal nightmare. Where do the long and shadowy corridors of Rose's building lead?Written by
In an interview with assistant director Lamberto Bava, he said that he handled and wrangled so many cats during the shooting of this film that afterward he could no longer stand to be in the same room as a cat. He's avoided them since then. See more »
When Marks finds a hole in the floor, when the cat jumps in the hole, a human hand can be seen grabbing the cat under the floor when it lands in the hole. See more »
The Three Mothers rule the world with sorrow, tears and darkness. Mater Suspiriorum, the Mother of Sighs, and the oldest of the three, lives in Freiburg. Mater Lachrymarum, the Mother of Tears, and the most beautiful of the sisters, holds rule in Rome. Mater Tenebrarum, the Mother of Darkness, who is the youngest and cruelest of the three, controls New York.

The movie was released on home video in the United States in 1985 by Key Video (owned by 20th Century Fox) completely uncut with the running time of 107 minutes. However, the box featured a typo that listed the running time for the video to be 83 minutes. This error has led to the urban myth that Fox cut 25 minutes from the film for its American release. The Anchor Bay DVD release of Inferno is likewise the complete version of the film but with a new re-mastered widescreen transfer. See more »
People kill me. I am a big time Argento fan but this film is garbage if this was made by anyone but Dario you would never hear anything about it but since he made it it's the best thing since fish and grits. Im sorry but this film stinks. Defender's of this usually agree that it's plotless but they say it's all about the color scheme, nice colors in the film they are nice the music is cool too but that only takes you so far this movie has no plot. it's a collection of images that are a long way from Deep Red go with that Tenebrae hell even the Stendhal Syndrome is better his heart wasnt in this this is evident after the first half hour. Do yourself a favor save your money and you will thank me later
