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.
Two men investigate a series of slayings connected to a secret genetic facility.

Love Argento's early work! I agree that this is the weakest of his animal trilogy, but for some reason it's the one I enjoy the most.
Excellent Argento. We all know Argento is one of the true masters. If you don't know, turn in your Shudder membership.
just a great movie...
