Fluid camera work, juicy set pieces and a heart thumping soundtrack fuels this cult classic!
May 2, 2009
Deep Red is one of Dario Argento's best work. A Bavarian psychic senses a murderous killer in attendance of one of her exhibitions and witnesses her own bloody demise. A wimpy music composer (David Hemmings) and a pretty journalist (Daria Nicolodi) are soon caught up in a web of murder and mystery! Some nasty set pieces and a cool soundtrack by Goblin makes this one a winner.
I have to warn you fellow film buff to watch out for edited public domain copies of this classic that are still floating around out their. If the running time is less than two hours and it's not letterbox, stay away from it! Classic Argento at his best.
