Synopsis

A young policewoman slowly goes insane while tracking down an elusive serial rapist/killer through Italy when she herself becomes a victim of the brutal man’s obsession.

Our take

Dario Argento united with his daughter for this unusual family giallo collaboration which finds Asia as a young policewoman afflicted by the titular disease: art’s masterpieces have a mesmeric, transportive effect on her. A rabbit hole of total ruin and horror ensues. Not for the faint of heart!
