In 1977's Suspiria, director Dario Argento's first full-fledged supernatural horror thriller, a young ballet student encountered evil in a German dance academy. At the heart of the corruption was a single malevolent witch. Argento's follow-up expands upon the mythology suggested by Suspiria. Inferno opens as Rose Elliot (Irene Miracle) deciphers the Latin text of "The Three Mothers"--the confession of Varelli, the architect who constructed the abodes of Mater Suspiriorum (the Mother of Whispers), Mater Tenebrarum (the Mother of Shadows) and Mater Lachrymarum (the Mother of Tears).
