DEEP RED (1976) ***

In this entertaining giallo from the master of Italian horror, Dario Argento, David (Blow Up) Hemmings witnesses a murder and becomes the black gloved killer’s next target. It may drag in spots but the signature Argento touches (great cinematography, gory set pieces, frantic camerawork and music) keeps things interesting. The death by drowning in a tub of scalding water is the highlight (and was later stolen in Halloween 2), but the gruesome fate of the killer is also pretty great too. Argento did his masterpiece, Suspiria next.

AKA: The Hatchet Murders.
