Famous director makes rare visit to London.

by Jennie Kermode

The creator of cult films like Inferno and Suspiria, Dario Argento is widely acclaimed as one of the great masters of the horror genre. Now he is scheduled to make a rare visit to London where fans will have the chance to see him in person.

Argento will be a guest at the Film 4 FrightFest event on April 19, where he will be introducing his latest film, Mother Of Tears. Access to the event costs £15. This also allows access to screenings of hotly anticipated new movies Welcome To The Jungle and Storm Warning.

Mother Of Tears will not be going on general release in the UK but will shortly be available on DVD.
