DARIO ARGENTO & DARIA NICOLODI

The Dreamland presents some of the best collaborations between Dario Argento and Daria Nicolodi. Whether acting (DEEP RED, PHENOMENA, etc) or co-writing (SUSPIRIA & INFERNO), Dario Argento's most unforgettable films wouldn't have been the same without Daria's contributions. She even suggested Dario use up and coming rock band Goblin for the score of DEEP RED and the rest is history!

PHENOMENA 1985

Jennifer Connelly stars as a sleepwalking, telepathic 14-year-old who, while attending a remote Swiss boarding school named after Richard Wagner, teams up with a forensic entomologist (Donald Pleasence) and his nurse—a trained chimpanzee named Inga—to investigate a string of brutal murders. One of Argento’s finer and stranger films, Phenomena (often cited among his personal favorites) marked a radical departure for the director, who combined the bloodiest trappings of his previous gialli and the supernatural insanity of his “Three Mothers” films into something altogether more outré.
