Making stylistic excess look effortless, Argento’s sumptuous giallo marked the beginning of the director’s golden age.

Horror 1975 128 mins

Director: Dario Argento



After the commercial disappointment of The Five Days, Argento reneged on his promise of retiring his black leather gloves, instead returning to his roots with the giallo to end all gialli. Tinged with a touch of the supernatural and an incongruent side of sweet-natured humour, this Freudian nightmare follows David Hemmings’ British musician in Rome who, after witnessing the brutal murder of a psychic, teams up with a journalist (the first of many roles for Argento’s then-partner Daria Nicolodi) to find the killer. This presentation is in Italian with English subtitles.
