Dante’s Inferno — trailer online!


Thanks to my colleague David F. Dawes for pointing this out to me. Apparently the first feature-length Italian film was an adaptation of Dante’s Inferno released way back in 1911 — and now it is available on DVD, with a soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Check the trailer here — the effects are very impressive!

    That photo is freaking me out. I’m too scared to watch the trailer.

    The effects are impressive, though the restoration doesn’t seem to be as nice as Metropolis. Still, it is very tempting.
