Rome. An eclipse blocks out the sun, blackening the skies on a hot summer day - harbinger of the darkness that will envelop Diana when a serial killer chooses her as prey. Fleeing her predator, the young escort crashes her car and loses her sight. She emerges from the initial shock determined to fight for her life, but she is no longer alone. Defending her and acting as her eyes is a little boy, Chin, who survived the car accident. But the killer won’t give up his victim. Who will be saved?

Dario Argento ("Suspiria") returns to directing after a ten-year hiatus with a film that mixes the mood of Italian “giallo” pulp fiction in his early work with his legendary touch of horror, albeit this time with a dose of sharp irony thrown into the mix.
