I'm not too familiar with the writings of the Divine Comedy that is Dante's Inferno. Nevertheless this was still quite an experience and one I consider as a favorite. The use of the sets and effects to depict Dante's journey through hell is both haunting and creepy. Despite it being a silent movie, I chose to listen to some of my own musical choices to enhance the mood and boy with the right kind of music this movie can ever so transport you into hell along side of Dante himself.
It's nothing short of amazing to see something this creative and disturbing as being the first ever feature debut coming out of Italy at the time. Hell is depicted with such surreal amusement that it makes you wonder if it would ever really look like it does in this film. Even Lucifer himself, chomping down on Brutus and Cassius, sent a chill up my spine. It may seem silly to some, but this version of Lucifer gave me the creeps!
An amazing movie for it's time with equally impressive effects of what hell might look like.
