I wasn't crazy about this Argento film, but it's grown on me. Has some good moments throughout, and a really great twist and ending sequence.
Excellent writing. So many twists. One or two moments where I gasped out loud. Cool soundtrack. Definitely worth the watch.
This movie is surprisingly clever and brutal. Great horror/mystery giallo movie. Definitely check it out!
Some scenes were ridiculously tedious, and dragged on for longer than I'd like, but I enjoyed it in the end. The end of the movie saved it for me.
Interesting story. Bad pace
