  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Now this is a right hard one to review. Cinematography and sometimes photography is great. The rest is ridiculous.

  2. CJL's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Mubi's copy has inconsistencies. It's listed as having English audio & no subtitles, but at 92 minutes it switches to Italian with English subs, then back & forth. Subs also appear (often cropped at the bottom) when actors read notes, newspapers etc written in Italian. This is an Italian film: I'd expect Italian audio, for consistency. I gave up on Amazon Prime because of similar issues. I expect better from Mubi.

  4. dmol's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    I'm a sucker for Argento. I didn't find this one as moody and atmospheric as Suspiria for example, but the mystery in the air punctuated by saturated colour, deft camera work, erratic music rhythms and idiosyncratic humans always gets me.

    master of the macabre. brilliant

  6. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    I recommend this movie, especially to fans of Argento (of course), but it's not the best example of a movie of this type. It's not even in the top 5 Argento movies of this type, in my opinion. Nonetheless, this is a good film with an abundance of style and ingenuity. And some musical input from Ennio Morricone.

  7. Rocco's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    This is definitely the best of Argento’s animal trilogy, featuring genuinely unsettling thematic material, stylish yet crude effects and a perfectly cast Mimsy Farmer.

  8. Armanti's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Four flies on grey velvet is a traumatic masterpiece by Dario Argento; it's a perfect thriller with a hypnotic and mysterious plot. The third and final chapter of the Argento's "Animal Trilogy"; carried by the admirable Ennio Morricone improvised rock drummer.

  9. Peter Walsh's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    When it's comes to the horrific ol' Dario Argento is not messing about. Disquieting, discomforting, all snared up in the horror of an absolutely unhinged murderer. Let down only by an ending which feels like it comes mid sentence.

  10. Daniel's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    The title keeps you wondering what is all about until the final revelation which is a brilliant concept. The exquisite photography and some really clever editing devices keep you watching but the pace is heavy going. It leaves you with the feeling there wasn’t enough material for a feature here and it had to be stretched to the limit. A real curiosity.

  11. miles's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    nah. He's done better, but he learnt a lot making this one though.

  12. ali di pollo's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    bellissime inquadrature ma la storia è troppo scema

    On retient seulement les séquences d'ouverture et la scène finale... www.cinefiches.com

  15. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Least favorite from the trilogy but still a well written one, with its dose of tense atmosphere. With this one and the two others from the trilogy Argento confirms that he stands among the finest directors in the thriller-giallo genre. However Suspiria remains his most aesthetic accomplished with its splendid romantical morbidity.

  18. D.J. Devereux's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Every motherfucker will go on and on and on and declare that Suspiria or Profondo Rosso is the greatest Giallo film of all time, But no one will ever mention this film. This is the 2nd greatest Giallo of them all (Blood and Black Lace by Mario Bava is 1st) and this has hands down the greatest giallo soundtrack (conducted by the maestro Ennio Morricone) with the greatest climax IN Slow Motion ever filmed.

  20. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Un film aux particularités remarquables : une musique de Morricone parfois plus inattendue qu'à l'accoutumée, une interprétation dérangeante plus que mauvaise ou décalée, des séquences de crimes encore une fois exceptionnelles de froideur et de crudité, Bud Spencer incarnant "Dieu" et Marielle en détective homosexuel !... Bref, un univers unique ! Et si l'on rêvait d'un "Panda malabarais de velours possédé" ?

  21. Christophe's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Un scénario faible porté par un bon cadrage

  22. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

  23. ADZERTY's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    C'est je crois le grand mérite d'Argento d'avoir exploité les ressorts du cinéma d'horreur pour développer dans ses films le suspens policier et traduire l'angoisse des victimes. L'audace de ses montages renforce l'expression du fantastique, c'est particulièrement le cas dans ce film, qui vaut aussi pour son humour, l'impayable prestation de J.P. Marielle et la musique de Morricone.

  24. Sushi Overdose's rating of the film Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Comme la sensation d'ouvrir un tiroir à cauchemars : la seule issue est de retrouver le souffle du réel.
