Argento classic, 2nd only to Susperia
More of a murder mystery than a horror movie
Could have been really great... if it made sense. The editing and use of different types of shots to show violence were excellent and I wish I still saw more like that in today's movies. Although some of the dialogue was hilarious, it didn't clearly fit in with the rest of the movie. The music was good and the acting was passable, but I couldn't follow the plot for more than a few seconds. There was no clear character development at all. I barely managed to finish it with how much it left me scratching my head.
The protagonist, played by David Hemmings, is difficult to watch. Music is good (as always for Argento).
