From his first work scripting Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West, his directorial breakthrough with the chic giallo The Bird with the Crystal Plumage and his ground-breaking collaboration with progressive rock group Goblin for the Deep Red soundtrack, to producing the gut-wrenching Dawn of the Dead and his Terror Trilogy with his Hollywood superstar daughter Asia Argento, everything you ever wanted to know about Dario Argento is all here. For a quarter of a century, internationally renowned journalist Alan Jones has tirelessly reported on every aspect of Argento's career. Now, for the first time, every single feature, interview, review and in-depth look at Argento's multi-faceted universe has been meticulously collated into one unique volume that tells the complete story of the man, the myths and the magic. With a wealth of new material and interviews exclusively conducted for this exhaustive overview of Argento's extraordinary body of work, Jones reveals never before published facts and secrets about the man who changed the face of global horror with the super-shock sensation Suspiria. Illustrated with rare stills, posters and candid behind-the-scenes photos from the author's private collection, Jones probes deep into the psyche and methodology of one of the world's most celebrated genre directors, and in doing so also uncovers the luminous chaos of the entire Italian Film Industry itself.
