Dario Argento's OTHER 1970s masterpiece. Probably the best score to any of his films to boot. goddamn, this movie is amazing.

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.

A Manhunter meets Don't Look Now meets... well Dario Argento. Fun and entertaining, but also confusing (especially language-wise), poorly acted and over-stylish.

As perfect a 70s thriller as I could hope to see... the music, the tension, the hilarious gore, the evil child, the easy-to-follow plot which makes very little sense. A lot of humor, and very easy on the eyes.

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

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_.

The gore, when it comes, is glorious and the story is justifiably hokey, because what really works is Argento's use of perspective - how reliable, really, is what we're seeing? It points to the uncertainty and (hidden?) depravity in all of us, which makes it awesome.

Argento's thesis and manifesto. I mean, Dario is clearly a leftist, anti-fascist, pro-gay artist; however, his films feature some of the most vicious misogyny ever committed to film. Oddly enough, though it is disgusting, seeing that misogyny expressed hyperrealistically allows us to see it, understand it, and hate it clearly, which is the power of Argento: he chooses to make ugly acts beautiful, so we can both loathe and appreciate him. Whatevs. It's a fucked up movie: best intro to giallo.

Damn fantastic use of the medium. The colour, the camera movement, the score, every aspect of the aesthetic composition is exactly as it should be to inspire a reaction from the audience. The content itself doesn't really merit 2 hours but it's a minor complaint and completely forgivable for such great presentation.

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.
