After viewing this film, you'll probably develop asthma. Watch the long version.

From disturbing hidden paintings to maniacal robot children, every now and then Argento throws something really exciting at you. The acting is a mixed bag, with some truly horrible comic banter, but for the most part it's okay. The photographic style and visual imagery was impressive. The Goblin score is cheesy, but not in a profoundly detrimental way. Overall I didn't like it as much as Plumage (which this film is awfully similar to) but it hasn't dissuaded me from checking out more Argento.

If this is Argento's masterpiece I would hate to have to sit through one of his "lesser works"! Tedious beyond belief, ham acting, grating soundtrack, weird unexplained characters, pathetic special effects, chock full of "horror" cliches and a script that made every character look like they were complete imbeciles ... Hemmings emotional lexicon runs all the way from A to A+. This almost makes "Dont Look Now" (a very similar looking film) seem good, except at least Deep Red has a reasonable story

Deep Red's a lesser work than the supreme likes of Argento's finest films -- Suspiria, Opera and Sleepless -- but such a fact takes nothing away from its individual achievements. It's another audaciously structured, visually superlative work of Giallo cinema from one of Italy's finest filmmakers.

Stoops to tedium here and there, and the ending is downright silly, but Argento's style has magic about it, and even the silly bits have camp allure. Worthwhile.

It is wonderfully shot and has an interesting score, but I only wish the story was more fluid. There are times when this is very cool, but there are too many scenes IMO that were a bit dull between them. The acting could have been better too.

I realise that this film is considered one of the best and perhaps archetypal Argento film, containing many of the classic elements central to his oeuvre. However for me it was nothing more than just that, a collection of elements. Having seen Crystal Plumage and Cat O' Nine Tails, I was disappointed at how similar the story is again here. Identical structure, too many similarities, same problems (saggy middle). I wish Argento had left his comfort zone more often. The best part? Goblin's music.

In spite of the awkward humour and unengaging plotting it's hard not to enjoy it. The dialogue may clunk along but the camera gracefully glides and the accompanying Goblin score is electrifying.

Much ado about...not much of anything. As usual with Argento, acting can be sporadic at times (especially noticeable here with Nicolodi).

Forget Suspiria, THIS is Dario Argento's masterpiece. It's about a British jazz pianist in Rome who witnesses the brutal cleaver murder of a psychic woman. He ends up as a suspect and teams up with a female journalist to unravel the crime and prove his innocence. Typical of Argento, this is a slow paced two hours of lush visuals (including a few nasty killings) that doesn't make a ton of sense, leading up to the final 5 minutes which explains everything and throws in a nice shocker.

The best Italian giallo slasher. Good mood masterfully created with Goblin's music. Mixes traditional contentions (man/woman). Rescreening did not change the score; maybe a bit ageing story. I did like the building where the killer used to live and wonder was it a set or a real thing. Extra close-up camera pan on toys was still stunning.
