The Cat O'Nine Tails

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.

Cast: Karl Malden, James Cranciscus, Catherine Spaak

Movie was long, boring and confusing overall. Had a few snippets of interesting scenes. You may like it better than I did, so give it a go:)

early giallo filled with bright red blood of the era, essential viewing for Argento fans
