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.

One of my least favorite early Argento films. Stylishly great but lack a cohesive story line.
Really good, stylishly directed murder mystery. It was a little slow in parts, but it keeps you guessing until the end.
Boring, hard to keep wanting to watch. Ending is super sad. No thanks
wonderful spot of classic 70s horror. what a soundtrack. would love more Giallo on Shudder.
kind of wish 4 flies was on here as well but this film is still a great introduction to argentos style.
