From Dario Argento, maestro of the macabre and the man behind some the greatest excursions in Italian horror (‘Suspiria,’ ‘The Bird with the Crystal Plumage’), comes ‘Deep Red’ – arguably the ultimate giallo movie.
One night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, ‘Blow Up’), looking up from the street below, witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just manages to miss the perpetrator . . . or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus finds himself ensnared in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems.
Aided by a throbbing score from regular Argento-collaborators Goblin, ‘Deep Red’ is a hallucinatory fever dream of a giallo punctuated by some of the most astonishing set-pieces the sub-genre has to offer.
