Critic Reviews:

If there’s no logical connection between the film’s killings and Jennifer’s relationship to the world, Phenomena is still uniquely and fabulously scatterbrained.


Phenomena is not Mr. Argento’s best. IMHO, Deep Red holds that title. It is, however, a terrifically entertaining murder mystery with some great set pieces and a driving score by some members of Goblin among others.


Phenomena is absolutely insane. Dario Argento, the writer and director, is clearly insane. It’s not like he directed a movie someone else wrote, and it doesn’t make sense. No, this is all him. This is his vision. This is him…and he’s crazy.
