YMMV / Mother of Tears

  • Anti-Climax Boss: As has become the norm for this trilogy, Mater Lachrymarum is killed rather quickly.
  • Complete Monster: Mater Lachrymarum, the Mother of Tears, is the most beautiful and powerful of her wicked sisters. Upon awakening from her deep slumber, Lachrymarum disregards the deaths of her sisters and proceeds to unleash a wave of violence onto Rome ranging from random acts of vandalism, to possessed mothers killing their own babies, to mass suicides. Lachrymarum also saw her devoted followers as expendable, allowing them to cannibalize and torture each other as they saw fit to her cruel amusement. Lachrymarum's ultimate goal was to usher in a new era of witchcraft starting with the obliteration of Rome; with victory seemingly within reach, Lachrymarum attempts to offer the heroine Sarah Mandy, daughter of the one good witch who had managed to once fight the Three Mothers, to her cannibalistic followers. Seeking to expand her powers until she blighted the world itself in darkness, Lachrymarum demonstrates the pure, unbridled evil of the Three Mothers.
  • Evil is Sexy: Mater Lachrymarum, and justified for the reason of being known as the most beautiful of the Three Mothers.
  • Les Yay
  • Narm: The monkey. Just ... the monkey.
  • Sequelitis: Critics and many of Argento's fans thought it was a disappointing third chapter of the trilogy.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Argento took most of what made Suspiria and Inferno great and discarded them in favor of a more open environment and violence for the sake of violence. This doesn't fare well for Mother of Tears.
