View All Critic Reviews Jul 01, Argento's directorial debut is an enjoyable giallo with a few signs of the visual tricks he would develop of the next few years and a great score by Morricone.
The initial attack is staged very well with Musante trapped between two glass doors and the final reveal is creepy and clever.
The acting is pretty good too and there is none of the gore that Argento would become known for in films like 'Terror at the Opera' and 'Tenebrae'. Not Argento's best but a very good start. David S Super Reviewer. Dec 05, Enjoyed this, yet another Argento film ive seen this year, again typical of him, and it run well.
Oct 09, He didn't often branch out, but he was always willing. However, be The Isley Brothers Go For Your Guns a drama, a comedy, or a darned action movie that he makes next; the man will always be known for the kinds of films that he made and made well.
My personal favorite out of all Argento's features is "Deep Red". His acclaimed "Suspiria" would come in second. And as of now, I'm pretty sure that this film deserves third place. It's the film that put the director on the map as someone to watch; someone to care about. This is the film that helped re-launch the sub-genre of Ennio Morricone The Bird With The Crystal Plumage Horror"; a little thing that started with masterpieces such as the early works of Mario Bava.
Argento's film is just as good. It works like a good deal Walter Carlos Sonic Seasonings Argento's films work, although it doesn't quite go as "all-the-way" with surrealism as his later features would. He could only do so much with what he got, and I assume that wasn't much, at that.
