“Operating under the principle that a moving camera is always better than a static one, and not above throwing in a terrifying evil doll, Deep Red showcases the technical bravado and loopy shock tactics that made Argento famous.” - Keith Phipps, AV Club
“Undoubtedly the finest of Argento's thrilling horrors.” - William Thomas, Empire Magazine
February 8 at 8:30pm | DEEP RED is an exhilarating web of murder and mystery set in Rome, starring David Hemmings (BLOW-UP) as jazz pianist Marcus Daly who, after witnessing the murder of his psychic neighbor, pairs up with gumshoe reporter Gianna Brezzi (Argento’s then-partner, the late Daria Nicolodi) to solve the case; the two just have to stay alive. Argento’s camera never seems to stop moving, taking on a near predatory gaze in this hallucinatory, Hitchcockian horror released at the height of the Giallo craze. 4K digital restoration by Cinecittà.
Argento 1970s: Masterful or trashy; ghastly or gorgeous -- Argento: 1970s showcases a defining and essential era of the Italian master of terror, Dario Argento.
