The sequel, Inferno, developed the overarching plot continuities concerning the three central witches when released in 1980. When released in 1977, the first film, Suspiria, introduced the major stylistic elements of the series, including the bold use of primary colors and elaborate setpieces for each murder. She is also known as The Black Queen; any mention of Helena Markos being one of the Three Mothers would not be made until Inferno three years later.

Sarah, having healed Enzo's wounds, uses a spear to pull the cloak off Mater Lachrymarum and tosses it into a nearby fire.Whilst all of these elements aren’t a huge part of the film, fans of the trilogy will definitely appreciate them. To be fair, if you were compiling a list of Mother of Tears' many failures, she wouldn't be too high up.

The aged witch attempts to use her magic to kill the girl, but her powers — including those of invisibility, illusion casting, and telekinesis — prove insufficient due to her feeble state. Firstly Mother of Tears has many elements that make an Argento film, ravishing photography, an eye for the bizarre and obscure details, brutal violence and gore and all presented in a dream like and magical world. Michael is given a message the Cardinal had been writing when he collapsed; the paper contains the scrawled name "Mater Lachrymarum. Although I’d read extremely mixed reviews, I was curious about this third film and eventually decided to take a look at it.

The urn is shipped to the Museum of Ancient Art in Rome, where Sarah Mandy (Asia Argento), an American studying art restoration, works. It was confirmed on 28 May 2007 that the film would receive a rating of 14 in Italy, necessitating the removal of "all hardcore gore" which would later "be re-instated for the dvd release". With help from the assistant curator, Sarah opens the box and finds the cloak, a dagger, and three statues representing the three witches. This film isn’t quite old enough to be considered “retro” yet, but it’s also old enough to instantly evoke nostalgia in anyone who lived through the 2000s. The score also incorporates electronic music and influences from Simonetti's earlier work on Argento films, such as Suspiria and Phenomena.

That was the title the originally contacted American sales agent Myriad wanted for international distribution. This is the third and final installment in his "Mother Trilogy," which he began 30 years prior with Suspiria (1977) and Inferno (1980). A 2007 film written and directed by Dario Argento and starring his daughter, Asia Argento and Udo Kier. This film felt like reading one of these books, but mixed with classic Dario Argento movies too 🙂 Yes, it isn’t “high art” and there’s a hint of “so bad that it’s good”, but it is the kind of edgy, cool and over-the-top splatter film that has a distinctive “personality” and is just fun to watch. Michael visits the Cardinal who sent him the urn only to find out that, shortly after mailing the urn to him, he had a severe stroke and is now in a coma.Tenebrarum's bloodlust would ultimately be her own undoing, as one of her victims, a maid, was inadvertently responsible for the house catching fire in the midst of her death throes. As early as 1984, Daria Nicolodi asserted in an interview with Fangoria – alongside Argento – that they had "finished the script for the third [film] but there are a few things we are still working on to perfect the project, a couple of special effects and locations, that sort of thing. Maitland McDonagh of Film Journal International panned the film, describing it as "sadly lacking in the baroque atmosphere and visual aesthetic that elevated Argento above the horror hacks—it's flatly lit, indifferently staged, coarsely violent and brutally straightforward. A young American, Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper), discovers the hidden chambers beneath the school after several pupils are killed by Markos' proxies.
