‘Dark Glasses’ Teaser Trailer: Dario Argento’s New Giallo Looks to Be a Return to Form!



'Dark Glasses' Teaser Trailer: Dario Argento's New Giallo Looks to Be a Return to Form!

After a decade of absence, the Italian horror master Dario Argento returns to horror with Dark Glasses, which is set to have its world this Friday at the Berlin International Film Festival. Ahead of its official debut, a new teaser trailer (embedded below) has been released today giving us our first look at the blood-soaked mayhem to come.

My best guess is we could be getting a full trailer for Argento’s new Gallo at some point this week, so keep those fingers tightly crossed for that possibly happening.

The film has the following synopsis:

In an almost deserted, summery Rome in the midst of a hypnotic solar eclipse, a mysterious serial killer starts targeting high-end prostitutes. Diana is one of them. In a desperate attempt to escape him, she becomes the victim of a serious car accident that leaves her blind. After a long period of rehabilitation, Diana learns that the only other survivor of the crash is a now-orphaned child of Chinese descent named Chin, and she decides to take care of him. Coming from different cultural backgrounds, the two connect via a special bond that allows them to defend themselves from the serial killer’s thirst for revenge.

Dario Argento returns to directing after a ten-year hiatus with a film that mixes the mood of Italian “giallo” pulp fiction in his early work with his legendary touch of horror, albeit this time with a dose of sharp irony thrown into the mix. Occhiali neri is a headlong dash between city and countryside that explores the social conflict between rich neighbourhoods and Rome’s so-called Chinatown. The maestro’s gaze transforms this nightmare into pure geometry, and the class war into the kind of metaphysical architecture reminiscent of Antonioni.
