“The second key is hidden in the cellar.”

Three cities are hosts to some evil witches coven. When a series of murders take place nearby a peculiar building in downtown New York, a brother and sister delve into the insanity only to come face to face with the witches and the devil’s work.

The second instalment in “The Mothers of Tears” trilogy by Dario Argento. The follow up of “Suspiria” lacks a bit of the same punch to it. It’s a great fairytale of death and mayhem, but the start promise more than it delivers. But this is by no means a bad movie. It’s made by Argento, and has all his great trademarks all over the movie. Psychedelic and dreamy settings, bloody murders, flesheating animals, cool lightning, crazy interiors and a haunting soundtrack.
