Maitland McDonagh: Broken Mirrors / Broken Minds - The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento


Maitland McDonagh: Broken Mirrors / Broken Minds – The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento


„Essential ... will surely become the cornerstone of all subsequent Argento studies.“
Clive Barker

„Long overdue, it will remain the definitive text on Argento’s films and excesses for quite some time.“

„A reason to celebrate for serious horror fans.“

„A remarkable and exciting work.“

„McDonagh is a damn fine writer ... one of the best books about horror movies I’ve ever read.“

„An enlightening book.... We strongly recommend it.“
Video Watchdog

„Simply stated: If you’re an Argento fan, buy this book.“

„This enticingly titled book (taken from a line from SUSPIRIA) is an absolute must for any Argentophile. One comes away from it with a new sense of and respect for Dario Argento as an auteur who is both a dedicated craftsman and an inspiration for other filmmakers and filmgoers alike. This book is heartily recommended. Brava Maitland!“
