Dario Argento’s Deep Red (4K Restoration!)

Dario Argento’s Deep Red (4K Restoration!)

From Dario Argento, the man behind some the greatest excursions in Italian horror (SUSPIRIA, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS), comes DEEP RED: Arguably the ultimate “giallo.” Aided by a throbbing score from legendary proggers Goblin, this hallucinatory fever dream is punctuated by some of the most expert setpieces the genre has to offer.

One lonely night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, BLOW UP), looks up from the plaza below and witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just misses the perpetrator — or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus ensnares himself in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems.

“Argento’s first full-fledged masterpiece, a riveting thriller whose secrets carefully unravel via carefully calibrated compositions that become…virtual gateways into Freudian pasts. Like Argento’s ever-flowing camera, DEEP RED’s killer is everywhere.” (Slant Magazine)
