Production[edit | edit source]

Production on Inferno began in April, 1979 and concluded in September. It was filmed primarily on location and on set in Lazio, Rome, Italy with some scenes filmed in New York City.

Inferno failed at the box office, grossing only ITL 508,000. It had a limited theatrical release in the United States and received generally negative reviews. Part of it's failure could be attributed to numerous problems in trying to find international distribution. The film has since developed a cult following however, and is considered a vital element of the Dario Argento's filmography.

Home Video[edit | edit source]

Inferno was released on VHS home video and DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment/Starz Entertainment on April 25th, 2000. It was presented in anamorphic widescreen format as part of the Dario Argento collection. It included an exclusive interview with director Dario Argento. Anchor Bay later repackaged the film along with Phenomena as part of a twin-pack gift set on July 10th, 2001. This version included the same Argento interview, a still gallery and other special features relating to Phenomena.

The film was re-released on DVD by Blue Underground on February 27th, 2007. This version retains the same features from the Ancor Bay edition, but also included talent bios of select cast and crew members.
