|Argento prepares to cut his cake.|
Today's Dario Argento's Birthday! Argento is an innovator in horror and a master of the Italian giallo genre.
He's also an alumnus of the Toronto International Film Festival, having shown Mother of Tears (2007), The Stendhal Syndrome (1996), Trauma (1993); Two Evil Eyes (1990), co-directed with George Romero; Opera (1989) all at Midnight Madness. In fact, after Takashi Miike, Argento's the director who's shown the most films at Midnight Madness.
His most famous films include Suspiria; The Bird With The Crystal Plumage; and Deep Red. More recently he's had two episodes of Masters of Horror, ("Jenifer" and "Pelts"); Giallo starring Adrien Brody, and his newest film is Dracula 3D with Rutger Hauer as the Count.
Happy Birthday, Maestro!
