The maestro is getting the documentary treatment in the upcoming Dario Argento doc Dario Argento Panico. Take a walk through giallo (and cinema) history with a combination of archival footage, interviews with Argento himself, and an impressive roster of interviewees, including Asia Argento, Fiore Argento, Nicolas Winding Refn, Gaspar Noè, Guillermo del Toro, Michel Savia and Lamberto Bava. The feature-length documentary is coming to Shudder February 2, but we have a special sneak peek at the legendary Guillermo del Toro discussing Argento's Deep Red. Take it away!
This is the kind of thing that makes you remember why you fell in love with film in the first place, and the contributions Argento has made to the genre and cinema as a whole.
Take a look at the official synopsis:
In the secluded ambiance of hotel rooms, Dario Argento crafted his greatest cinematic creations, seeking solace from the outside world to delve into his nightmares. Now, he finds himself in a hotel room to return to the very setting that ignited his creative fervor to conclude his latest script and participate in an intimate interview, all while being followed by a film crew documenting his life for a movie about his illustrious career.
Dario Argento Panico begins streaming on Shudder on February 2.
