* TheFaceless: In contrast to Suspiria, where [[spoiler: the entire faculty belongs to the coven]], the faces of Tenebrarum's coven and servants are appropriately masked by shadow at all times.
* FailureHero: Unlike Suzy in Suspiria, Mark had done nothing to contribute to the villains's defeat. Tenebrarum died in the fire that she had unintentionally caused on her own through one of her murders.

Rose Elliot, a poetess living in New York, purchases a book from a local antiques dealer. Written by an alchemist known as Varelli, the book explains how the author was comissioned by three evil (and very powerful) witches to construct stately mansions for them, from which they rule over the world with insanity, grief and despair. Realizing that the apartment she now resides in might be the home of Mater Tenebrarum, the Mother of Darkness, Rose writes to her brother Mark, currently studying music in Rome, to warn him of her fears.

The second film in a loose trilogy (between ''Film/{{Suspiria}}'' and ''Film/MotherOfTears''), in terms of storytelling ''Inferno'' is the most alien of the three. While ''Suspiria'' walked a thin line between murder mystery and surreal horror, ''Inferno'' dispenses with any sort of narrative structure, instead running on a dream logic that makes no concessions to reality. This has made it extremely polarizing among fans of Argento, and of Italian horror in general. To its credit, many notable fans, including critic Creator/KimNewman, consider it one of the most underrated horror films of the 1980s.

** [[spoiler: Considering the last time we see her she's screaming as her house falls apart around her, it'd be reasonable to assume she died with her house, much like her predecessor.]]

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Kazanian who drowned a few cats out of annoyance and ended up being eaten by rats and stabbed to death for knowing it too much. Also Carol who was in cahoots with the coven if not a member herself and ended up burned to death.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: Elise's butler and Carol the caretaker try to steal her belongings after she dies. The butler has his eyes gouged out (but still attached to the nerves), and Carol accidentally starts the fire which destroys the building. In her attempt to put the flames out, she gets tangled in curtains, set on fire, and then stumbles out a window and falls several stories to her death.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OffWithHisHead: Subverted. [[spoiler: Rose is nearly decapitated by a large pane of glass, only it doesn't completely sever her head from her body. Instead, it's repeatedly slammed into her neck harder and harder, cutting deeper through until she finally dies.]]
