MOTHER OF TEARS - THE PIT OF HORROR REVIEW -- [Posted 27th June 2008]


An ancient urn is found in a cemetery outside Rome. Once opened, it triggers a series of violent incidents: robberies, rapes and murders increase dramatically, while several mysterious, evil-looking young women coming from all over the world are gathering in the city. All these events are caused by the return of Mater Lacrimarum, the last of three powerful witches who have been spreading terror and death for centuries. Alone against an army of psychos and demons, Sarah (Asia Argento) Manni, an art student who seems to have supernatural abilities of her own, is the only person left to prevent the Mother of Tears from destroying Rome.

And there you have the third entry in Argento's "Three Mothers" trilogy, that brings Argento back to form. Lets face it, his last few films have not been so good. Even his Masters of Horror entry was lacking. But, astonishingly the maestro kicks it into high gear from the first frame of the Suspiria/Inferno sequel and Argento rarely lets up from there.

Among the many sights on display in Dario Argentoís Mother of Tears are a hissing monkey, hooded occultists, a smiling mother drops her baby off a bridge, intestines employed as an impromptu noose, barbed wire sex, and the sexiest witch I have ever seen... oh and my girl, Asia Argento. Itís clear from the get go that no one thing is safe or sacred in this final, long-gestating installment of the director's "Three Mothers" trilogy.

Creating a chaotic thrill ride of a movie, it's an amazing horror film, sick as hell, and should be on the must see list of every true fan of horror.
