the last half rocks.
This is either Argento's best or second best, I can never decide. A classic. The soundtrack by Goblin is just amazing, I love it.
Some great stuff in here, especially the reveal. Probably Argento's second-best movie after SUSPIRIA, his inspired visuals less weighed down by the misogyny and pseudoscience of his other pure giallos.
I'm not use to Dario Argento's stuff. I saw Suspiria a LONNNNNNNNG time ago and was unimpressed but let's face it, that wasn't the horror I'm use to. I can't say that Deep Red was horrifying or scary but I enjoyed it for the camp aspect and I pretty much guffawed through the whole thing. The music was all OVER the place, the settings were fucking great, and I enjoyed those aspects. I might just dive in for another one. I hear Tenebre is fun.
well shot with a good soundtrack, but i didn't really enjoy the movie that much. plot was kind of predicable. i don't understand why the piano player turned into a detective all of a sudden. also, the "clue" i noticed the first time through, so that took away from the enjoyment some. worth watching for the goblin soundtrack and some interesting shots.
