Dario Argento returns with new Giallo ‘Dark Glasses’

Master of horror Dario Argento is back for his first film since Dracula 3D, with the new Giallo thriller Dark Glasses.

The first image from the film has been shared by ScreenDaily with Ilenia Pastorelli as a prostitute blinded by a serial killer in a botched attack who takes in a young Chinese boy, whose life has also been abruptly altered forever by the maniac’s actions. He will become her ally in a terrifying struggle to see off the serial killer forever.

Argento said this of Dark Glasses in the director’s notes –

“She’s an adult and blind, he’s too young to get by on his own. In addition, two different cultures: she is Italian, the child is Chinese. This combination is the engine of Dark Glasses,”

“The film represents my desire to explore two worlds: hers, we know it; his is more mysterious, and it will let us enter the neighbourhoods, houses and customs of the Chinese community in Rome, where they created a real ‘Chinatown’.”

Dark Glasses is set for release in 2022.
