Trauma (1993) An anorexic young woman escapes from a psychiatric clinic and meets a young man who wants to help. She is caught and returned to her parents, who are soon beheaded by a garrotting stranger making the rounds about town, apparently striking only when it rains. The orphaned young woman and her new lover launch their own investigation and are endangered when a link is discovered with the victims and a particular operation performed years before.

More Movie Taglines:
  • Some Nightmares Haunt You. Some... Can Kill You.
  • a dark secret, a twisted mind, an insane desire for revenge.
Movie Trivia:
  • This was Dario Argento's first American production.
  • The role of Grace was originally offered to Bridget Fonda.
  • An opening sequence was supposed to feature Tom Savini being accidentally decapitated while the event is witnessed by the killer therefore triggering his/her dormant trauma.
  • The character played by Asia Argento is inspired by her half-sister Anna (Nicolodi's daughter from a previous marriage) who actually suffered from anorexia. Anna died in a scooter accident in 1994 shortly after the film's release, but she is seen in the actual movie during the closing credits dancing in the balcony.
  • Argento's usual collaborating rock band Goblin was originally suggested to write and perform the music score for the film, but were declined by the American producers who wanted something more friendly to the American audience, therefore Pino Donaggio's orchestral score was used.
