Giallo classic. Watch it immediately.
Overall not a bad movie, but definitely underwhelming after watching Dario Argentos other movie, “phenomena”. Deep red was a little slow paced for my taste. It was satisfying seeing the movie puzzle together by the end but I expected a bigger pay off.
haunting and tense. edge of my seat and thrilling
A defining film of the genre, this Giallo has all the perfect elements executed flawlessly. Even in 2021, the kills were all new to me. The mystery keeps you guessing- and had me wrong in the end. The unforgettable Goblin score will get your blood rushing. Note: There are a few outdated tropes involving homosexuality and misogyny, although aligned with time period. Regardless this film is a must-watch.
Absolutely bonkers plot and characters, but the action sequences and score by Goblin help to accentuate this fine entry into the genre by the maestro of the thrill himself.
