Deep Red / Profondo rosso (Dario Argento, 1975)
« on: 07 Jul 2007 - 22:19 »

I find this more enjoyable than Argento's most famous work "Suspira". Maybe because it has a comphrensible plot.


Anyway this is my favorite of his.
Sadly I only have the version title "THE Hatchet Murders" which is a hack job ;D

I viewed the uncut version last october and I was surprised to see all that was missing from my copy was extra dialogue and a few comedic moments.


Great Horror movie.

It's a superb film, possibly one of my favorite Gialli.

I know what you mean about 'Suspiria', great film to look at and listen to but without the eye and ear candy it'd be a dull film indeed.

The recent Blue Underground re-issue is well worth picking up, I think it's retailing at under $10 so it's a bargain too.

First i'd like to say this...the soundtrack is great!

However, does anybody else find that the tension totally disappears during the creepy scenes because of this soundtrack?
It isn't very creepy. Instead of being scared I feel more like jamming to it.
Very rockish and upbeat.

The scares that work best here are when the soundtrack is muted (the robot doll scene).

I love PROFONDO ROSSO, it's my second favourite of Argento's gialli, after THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE. There's much to admire - the Goblin score especially - and I believe it's the one film in his filmography that bridges the gap between his giallo and horror films.

Forthcoming 2-disc "ultimate edition" from Swedish label Studio S, it will be the same as AWE but with a nicer artwork:

I intend to upgrade to the AWE disc when it arrives in Helsinki. ::)

2 discs? I HOPE that means that they'll offer both - the international AND the longer Italian - cuts on seperate discs this time. ;) ;)

I'll be picking up the Studio S set as well. There's always room for another copy of Profondo Rosso  ::)

Looks very nice indeed! Might be tempted to double dip for this one.  :P

Me too. Haven't seen the export version in years and really should get around to getting a copy of it.

I love PROFONDO ROSSO, it's my second favourite of Argento's gialli, after THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE.

That's my order for Argento too.  I also like TENEBRE. 

For me, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE is such a ground breaking Gialli, riffing on Bava's BLOOD AND BLACK LACE and putting the Gialli into overdrive, and it never looked back.  Morricone's score also influenced countless Gialli scores, henceforth. 

Never thought I'd get to use the word "henceforth" on this board.  :-*

Great day, all in all.  :-\

Haven't seen the export cut in "uncesnored form" EVER..so I'm really looking forward to find out whether or not I'll like it better than the director's  cut. ::)

I really like the humour in the dc: Usually Dario isn't known for his comedic achievements, but for better or worse, the dialogues between Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi really have a certain charme and considering some of his later films, a bit more INTENDED fun here and there wouldn't have hurt - particularly in the weaker outings like "Phantom"...though that cracks me already up, sadly for all the wrong reasons. :-*

His first three films had their fair share of humour, too, which he seemed to have completely dropped for the most part beginning with "Suspiria"...

I don;t know why...The car scene with Hemmings and the loose sun visor always cracks me up! Proabaly, because I have ridden and owned my fair share of crappy cars.  Plus, I love the masculine/feminine playful domination play.
