Despite the harsh criticism his last movies received by Italian critics, Dario Argento is still being given a coverage by Italian media, which are incoherently and blindly attacking his movies while praising him as a renowned master of horror. In their recent appearance on prime-time Italian television, Dario and Asia Argento just chatted and joked with their host, as Argento expressed some of his already known anger towards Italian directors and critics. But in an interview appeared yesterday on the Italian newspaper “Il Corriere della Sera”, Argento revealed some details about his upcoming movie, La terza madre (The Mother of Tears), the last chapter of the trilogy started by Suspiria and continued by Inferno.

Warning! Spoilers ahead.

Shooting in Rome is reported as finished now, while the crew moved to Turin for a two-weeks schedule. Here, Argento was reached while rehearsing a scene involving Philippe Leroy as an old alchemist revealing the Three Mothers history to the young Asia. Reportedly, also rehearsed was a scene where Asia’s eyelids get propped open by Leroy with a painful looking device.
Argento also talked about the death of Leroy’s character (eaten by witches) and scenes comprising witches flying over Rome in an apocalyptic and chaotic Sabbath, with hundreds of deaths.

OK, this is the last time I'll get excited for an Argento project. Don't let me down again, Dario!

'Eyes propped open'..ala that heavy moment with the pins taped below her eyelids in 'Terror at the Opera'.

That scene killed me, worse than the Clockwork Orange one.

I hope he can come back strong. Stendahl Syndrome was his last half decent effort.

Finally, the third installment of the "Three Mothers." I'm hoping it will be as good as Suspiria and Inferno, although I favor Suspiria a little more than Inferno. I anxiously await this release.
