A 2007 film written and directed by Dario Argento and starring his daughter, Asia Argento and Udo Kier. Tenebrarum's bloodlust would ultimately be her own undoing, as one of her victims, a maid, was inadvertently responsible for the house catching fire in the midst of her death throes. Looking for answers, Sarah seeks help to learn about a spectral "voice" that guides her to protection from the invading witches and how she and her deceased mother are linked to the witches.

As witches from all over the world flock to Mater Lachrymarum's side to witness the second fall of Rome, Sarah learns that her mother was a white witch, and that she herself may be the only one capable of stopping Lachrymarum's evil reign. The film begins in Rome, where some workers at a graveyard stumble across a mysterious coffin with a box covered in occult symbols chained to it. Mother of Tears (Italian: La Terza madre, literally The Third Mother) is a 2007 supernatural horror film written and directed by Dario Argento, and starring Asia Argento, Daria Nicolodi, Moran Atias, Udo Kier and Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni.While the narrative comes frightfully close to unravelling at times, this is a thrill ride that holds you to the end. Grisly deaths await Italian citizens after an archaeology student (Asia Argento) accidentally releases a demonic witch from her ancient prison. The soundtrack was released around the same time as the film's Italian wide release (31 October 2007) by Edel Music. As early as 1984, Daria Nicolodi asserted in an interview with Fangoria – alongside Argento – that they had "finished the script for the third [film] but there are a few things we are still working on to perfect the project, a couple of special effects and locations, that sort of thing.

Though Mater Suspiriorum and her sister Mater Tenebrarum are now dead, Mater Lachrymarum aims to bring about the second age of magic, with the fall of Rome her first goal. It's true that The Mother of Tears, strictly as visual storytelling, suffers by comparison with the first and second Mother movies, or one of Mr.Whilst this film can be watched as a stand-alone film, you’ll probably get slightly more out of it if you have seen the other two films first. In May 2007, just before the event at Cannes, a promotional poster for The Third Mother was featured on the cover of Variety magazine's digital edition. This is difficult to describe exactly, but it just seemed like a more coherent, fun and compelling film than “Inferno” did. Things that are more immediately offensive than her: the groan-worthy ending, the cheap and utterly bland setting and aesthetic, and its complete inability to generate any sort of tension or suspense or atmosphere or honestly ANYTHING that would make this worth watching. Catholic Church workers dig up the body of a 19th-century church official, whose casket has a box-shaped urn chained to it.

There’s also the kind of supernatural/occult paranormal horror you’d expect from a film in this series too. The Cannes Film Festival requested that The Third Mother be ready in time for consideration as a 2007 competition contender. Unfortunately for Sarah, her supervisor opens an ancient container filled with ancient things and reads some ancient words.Sarah locates a powerful alchemist, whom Marta mentioned as her only hope to learn how to fight Mater Lachrymarum.

Inside the box they discover artifacts belonging to Mater Lachrymarum (Moran Atias), the last surviving member of the Three Mothers; an ancient trio of powerful black magic witches. In the 2018 film The Night Sitter, The Three Mothers are accidentally summoned by one of the children. It was confirmed on 28 May 2007 that the film would receive a rating of 14 in Italy, necessitating the removal of "all hardcore gore" which would later "be re-instated for the dvd release".

Detective Enzo Marki ( Cristian Solimeno), the police officer who has been tailing Sarah, joins her to venture into the catacombs where Mater Lachrymarum's cult lurks.Markos is depicted as an ancient, disfigured, centuries-old crone maintaining control over the coven and seeking to acquire a new, younger body as her current one is riddled in leprous sores, tumorous growths and immobile infants' limbs growing out of her own. Also at Cannes, Medusa's CEO Giampaolo Letta was quoted by Anderson and Gierasch as saying "This is going to be vintage Argento. Honestly, the gore is just about all Argento gets right, almost as a reconciliation for the rest of his limitations. She uses this to avoid a police detective, though she is forced to kill a witch who corners her on the train.
