Mother of Tears

After more than a quarter century, Italian horror maestro Dario Argento comes across with the last installment of his “Three Mothers” trilogy, in which a trio of witches rise from the dead to cause havoc in Germany (Suspiria, 1977), New York (Inferno, 1980), and now Rome. When a museum curator opens up a strangely marked urn unearthed at a construction site, demons swarm over her, cut her open, and strangle her with her own entrails. Then things get really violent. Argento is admired for his voluptuous use of color and his operatic bloodletting; this is lovely to look at, if you can stand to. Daughter Asia Argento plays the heroine. 101 min.
