      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The kinetic camerawork and brutal over-the-top gore that made Dario Argento famous is on full display, but the addition of a compelling, complex story makes Deep Red a masterpiece.

      Linda Gross Los Angeles Times Director Dario Argento provokes excruciating suspense but gets carried away with bloody flourishes. As ever, Hemmings is awfully convincing. Oct 27, 2021 Full Review Ann Guarino New York Daily News Argento, who's no Hitchcock, manufactures suspense with flashy camerawork, loud noises and pounding music. Then, all is garnished generously with gore. Credibility, which comes in a distant second, flies out the window in the process. Rated: 2/4 Oct 27, 2021 Full Review Douglas Aiton The Age (Australia) Visually and aurally, the film is enchanting. Oct 27, 2021 Full Review Tyler Doupe Dread Central Innovative camerawork, an intense score, and masterful editing make Deep Red a standout effort in Argento’s impressive filmography. Rated: 5/5 May 16, 2022 Full Review J Hurtado ScreenAnarchy Deep Red is really a film that needs to be experienced first hand, and the first time is always the best. So much of this film is a personal experience, and when it works, it is astounding. Oct 27, 2021 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy This exemplary giallo is clever enough to use its utterly compelling mystery to examine issues of gender identity and fluidity. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 2, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B Just about everything here works, from the engaging mystery to the stylish murders to the weird score. Also that mechanical doll man . . . probably Argento's best scare. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Christian K The Italians were crazy for this. Pretty standard and silly slasher whodunnit, the reveal and ending is very underwhelming. What I will remember from this is the awesome and crazy soundtrack. Each killing is associated with its own Mario Kart track theme. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/24 Full Review Greg T After Suspiria Dario's best movie - truly a great horror film! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review John A 'Deep Red' is clearly a bit hampered by the pacing and isn't Argento's most atmospheric/dreamy picture yet I think it is nearly impossible to not be swooped away into a state of suspension in disbelief with the film's bravura camerawork and more complex storytelling. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Ian M A virtuoso mix of slasher action and wit, this has got to be one of the most stylish movies of the 1970s. The Fiat 500 with the broken seat and jammed doors - David Hemmings's leading man is forced to climb out through the sunroof with his leading lady in the manner of Laurel and Hardy - is just one of the running gags that give us constant, welcome relief between episodes of seriously appalling bloodshed. The photography has all the panache of British director Nick Roeg, and the many of the creepiest visual tropes anticipate David Lynch. The false wall in the haunted house recalls the wall between the apartments in Polanski's Rosemary's Baby from 7 years before. The squeamish should not fear it too much: by contrast with Kubrik, who used real animal blood in The Shining, the gore here is fairly obviously of the Kensington variety. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/23/23 Full Review Jonathan O Deep Red is a true giallo of masterpiece film and watch it in Arrow Video 4K ultra looks very wonderful.
