Il gatto a nove code

Dario Argento ইতালি, 1971

The Macho King's rating of the film The Cat o' Nine Tails

A lower tier Argento giallo. The plot becomes horribly convoluted 3/4th's of the way through and will leave some people scratching their heads especially with the endless amount of twists & turns. Also the abrupt ending just feels extremely shallow. The main things of interest is Argento's stylized approach that is done in a more subdued manner compared to many of his other films and Morricone's score.-2 1/2 stars.
