Jennifer Corvino (portrayed by Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Connelly in one of her first film roles) is a “gifted” young girl with the strange ability to communicate with insects. After being sent to a private Swiss academy, she finds herself embroiled in a murderous plot involving maggots, mutants, and razor-wielding chimpanzee mayhem when Dr. McGregor (Donald Pleasence, John Carpenter's Halloween, Escape from New York) enlists her to help find a vicious killer on the loose.
Daria Nicolodi (Tenebrae) and Fiore Argento (Demons) round out the cast in this strange, unique, and gory film from Italy's Master of Horror, Dario Argento. PHENOMENA also features fantastic soundtrack music from progressive rock favorite Goblin, along with Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Andi Sex Gang, Bill Wyman, and Simon Boswell.
“Provides what is alternately Argento's most batty and spiritual landscape.” –Screen Anarchy
