DARIA NICOLODI DIES AT AGE 70





More tragic news which will sadden all fans of Italian horror; Daria Nicolodi,, the former partner of Dario Argento and mother of Asia, passed away in Rome five days ago. Daria became an icon of the genre largely due to her roles in Dario’s Deep Red, Inferno, Tenebrae, Phenomena and Opera, as well as in Mario Bava’s final film Shock. She also co-wrote Suspiria.

Said Asia on Instagram:
“Rest in peace beloved mother. Now you can fly free with your great spirit and you won’t have to suffer anymore. I will try to go on for your beloved grandchildren and especially for you who would never want to see me so grieved. Even if without you I miss the ground under my feet, and I feel I have lost my only true point of reference. I am close to all those who have known and loved her. I will always be your Aria, Daria.”

RIP Daria. I shall be watching your delightful performance in Deep Red tonight.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
