Friedkin On Argento
William Friedkin has contributed a list of his favorite horror films to EW. I was pleased to see several favorites on there, including Argento's DEEP RED and SUSPIRIA.
Here are some of Friedkin's generous comments towards Argento. Visit this link if you'd like to read the rest of his comments, and see his complete list. It is great to see one of my favorite American director's speaking so highly of Argento.
"These two films are just finally tuned machines to scare the hell out of you. And they do. They are the classic blood-spattered slasher films that have been imitated, copied, and remade without credit. They're strictly in the realm of fantasy, but Argento, being the great living master of horror, is so talented that they'll scare anyone who sees them.''
