Deep Red (1975) Review:

Deep Red is the essence of Giallo movies, a sub-genre of horror describing crime movie wrapped in a mystery and horror sauce.

The film introduction reminds of these police investigation TV series that our grand-parents watched after lunch, so do not expect much action during the first hour. However, if you manage to make it past the first 1h30, you’ll find yourself tangled into a deep and mysterious story, not being able to stop the film before you know who the killer is.

Deep Red is, before all, an atmosphere movie and in addition to a solid story, Argento makes a master job at using great musical pieces and clever camera shots to build up tension and a thick and mysterious ambiance.

To me, the kills are really the highlight of that film. They are only a few, but they are memorable, very ingenious and gory. The recurrent music during the killing brings additional greatness to the film.

The end is really good and brings its lot of surprise. This a great flick to watch for those who like both crime and horror. Moreover, this one really has got this little Argento’s touch that makes him unforgettable…not my favorite from Argento though
