I love me some horror movies, so it might surprise you - it did me - that every time I tried to watch the great Dario Argento's new movie, "Mother of Tears," I couldn't bring myself to do it.
I actually know very little about the film beyond the fact that it's about an American who deals with an unleashed demonic witch. But as with all of Argento's films, that is just a kick off point for some scathing social commentary and even more brutal imagery.
Just take a look at the first five IMDB.com plot keywords listed: Intestines, Mother Kills Own Child, Surrealism, Topless and Brutal. Typically those bullet points would make me see a movie, but combined with its genuinely freaky trailer, I think I just psyched myself out.
But I owe it to myself to see the movie - it's Dario freakin' Argento, man up, Jarett! In the meantime, the DVD is out today, so watch it and let me know your thoughts. Seriously, call me tonight, I'll probably be wide awake, afraid that some centuries old witch is trying to rip the fetus from my belly.
