Summary: A musician witnesses the murder of a famous psychic, and then teams up with a fiesty reporter to find the killer while evading attempts on their lives by the unseen killer bent on keeping a dark secret buried.
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.
Sweet soundtrack, nice cinematography, cool performance by Daria Nicolodi. The plot is a fairly straight-up murder mystery with a lot of red herrings, but the film's got great style and characters. Argento would reach greater heights, but this one is still a lot of fun.
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
Lots of visceral satisfaction to be found here, and a few legitimate scares, though nothing as nerve biting as the best Suspiria scenes. Deep Red is seeped in Hitchcock and Freudian lore, for better or for worse, in a way that almost out-Depalma's Depalma.
Slick, stylish, decadent, suspenseful thriller, with a disquieting atmosphere that continually puts its audience, like its victims, off-balance. Hemmings's character owes much to his role in Antonioni's _Blow Up_.
One of the great giallos and Argento's second best film. It's not as stylish as Suspiria, but the story is superior and it has some equally inspired sequences (the creepy doll, for example), as well as some fantastic, cringe inducing gore effects.
