Episode 37: Tenebrae


Tenebrae is a highly renowned giallo film, recently released on a single-disc Blu-Ray by Synapse Films. Dario Argento’s direction is fantastic in this whodunnit about a novelist targeted by a sadistic killer using his latest novel as inspiration, and many themes are prominent throughout this slow burn that uses death as an art form. We talk about giallo in general first, then dive into Tenebrae itself – its metacommentary, its ideas about human corruption and depravity, and of course the non-Goblin soundtrack.
