The Cat O'Nine Tails
Directed by Dario Argento
In Dario Argento’s fearsome follow-up to THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, a blind man (Karl Malden) and a reporter (James Franciscus) investigate a series of slayings connected to a secret genetic facility. The sleuths quickly narrow it down to nine suspects, including the institute head’s beautiful daughter. But each time they get close to solving the crimes, the killer strikes again. Argento trademarks abound here, including stylized use of color during murder scenes, extreme eyeball closeups, and a Hitchcockian finale on a roof that echoes NORTH BY NORTHWEST. Contains violence and gore.

Very well executed! Argento proves why he’s the master of horror and suspense by providing capabilities
Hey Shudder can we get an additional rating system?
I just wasted 111 minutes of my life
Decent murder mystery but not your standard classic Argento. Acting is good and the sets are stylish. The story is a little lacking.
