  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Pas vraiment de quoi frémir dans cette oeuvre relativement quelconque... www.cinefiches.com

  3. rulesofachia's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    This is probably the most well-written Fulci I've ever seen and needs more love! The less you know about it going in, the better.

  5. Tibulle85's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Vu à la cinémathèque, il y a longtemps. Un giallo flirtant sur le fantastique, au déroulement étonnamment maîtrisé pour le roi de l'horreur trash italienne! La fin est cependant un peu poussive. A voir pour les amateurs.

  6. Serena Doe's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    One of the best soundtracks ever.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Strange that the only stupid scene of this film is the close-up of the face of Virginia's mother when she falls from the cliff. Stupid and gratuitous because the movie didn't need such a scene. The rest is a good variation on E.A. Poe's 'The Black Cat' with a great performance by Jennifer O'Neill. Recommended.

  8. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Far from a slasher, this film is a tremendous bundle of mystery and suspense. Virginia (the glorious Jennifer O'Neill) has a premonition via a vision of images spawning an investigation into past events, as well as the future. Beyond keeping you locked in suspense, Fulci successfully investigates the power of image association, how an image can trigger sensations, instincts, and always mutating memories. (4.5)

  9. Mister No's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

  10. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Without lapsing into spoilers, Fulci's suspenseful & unusually restrained giallo effectively plays with self-reflexive notions of perception & the subjective belief that images can change their meaning when divorced from an original context. The film as such becomes a psychological jigsaw puzzle, in which fragments of a narrative slowly take on a more terrifying definition as the true nature of events becomes clear.

    Why the fuck did it take her sooo long to figure out what was going to happen, she's psychic for fuck's sake!

  12. Howard Orr's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Deriviative, perhaps, and certainly more sinister than scary, but so effective in its chills and its neat -almost claustrophobic- construction that it lingers longer in the memory than many brasher efforts in the supernatural mystery or horror genres.

  13. Domenico Nicoletti's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Fulci gira un film che è incredibile, chiunque è appassionato del cinema Italiano degli anni 70 sopratutto dei "gialli all'italiana" non può non guardare questa pellicola, forse supera anche Argento. Fulci ci tiene in tensione per tutta la durata del film, che poi si conclude in una maniera incredibile e sopratutto, tutto torna, nulla lasciato al caso o alle sviste, l'unica svista è il non vederne il genio indiscusso

  15. Pymo's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

  16. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    I can see why Lucho consider this one of his finest. Well constructed giallo that manages to pull it's strings while using a super natural premise. So, because our leading lady can see things, the story doesn't have to worry about complicated sub-plots or characters moving around too much. Lucho's direction is sharp, the performances solid and the score low key but effective.

  17. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    For a Fulci flick, Seven Notes in Black is strangely subdued, and almost totally without his usual penchant for blood, gore, tits, and ass. But this works to its advantage; Seven Notes in Black is easily the maestro's most character-driven film, and the one that bucks his trend of really bad endings.

  18. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Un thriller magnifico,in cui Fulci mette in mostra il suo talento in un fantastico gioco di dettagli che piano piano tendono a formare il quadro d'insieme.La regia è iper-visibile,con continui zoom e giramenti sempre volti a creare un senso di stranezza,quasi per vivere una dimensione onirica.Attori di spessore,fotografia montaggio notevoli,giustamente citato e omaggiato nel corso degli anni.Grande grande Lucio.4*

  19. Joshua's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Semi-giallo by Fulci. I guess he enjoyed the ending death of Non si sevizia un paperino that he replicated it here. He would also go on to use the Edgar A. Poe wall covering in Il gatto nero, 1981, but to so much more effect in The Psychic. That tale clearly had a great influence on Italian filmmakers. Christ, talk about overkill. But it was absolute tension and perfect use of it by the final 30 minutes. Thrilling!

  20. --'s rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Seven Notes is a well-plotted thriller, with the thematic touchstones of a giallo (if not the usual pound of flesh exacted by the killer). I was impressed by the relationship-building on display--not something I usually associate with Fulci. Similarly, the central psychic vision, and its exact nature, is unveiled with a deliberateness and precision that results in a satisfying twist (unlike, say, Minority Report).

  21. Alarico Ciaramelli's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

  22. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Probabilmente uno degli omaggi cinematografici più belli e originali ai racconti di Edgar Allan Poe.

  23. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Great movie by Fulci and one of his very best marking a point, when master of macabre was moving from giallo into a new territory of paranormal horror. A must-see!

  24. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Seven Notes in Black

    Fulci tempers his more extreme tendencies for this sharply-crafted, supernaturally-tinged Hitchcockian thriller. Some of the twists have been borrowed from a few too many times to still be surprising, but it's loaded with style, atmosphere, and strong performances. Can't say it's my favorite Fulci, as many have, but an excellent giallo thriller for fans of the genre, and maybe a good introduction to the uninitiated.
