Dario Argento's Bloody October


An English pianist living in Rome witnesses the brutal murder of his neighbor, a psychic. With the help of a tenacious young reporter he tries to discover the killer using very unconventional methods, and the two are soon drawn into a shocking web of dementia and violence.

We close out Dario Argento’s Bloody October with this eerie yet unspeakably beautiful thriller steeped in unsettling architecture, ominous camera movement, and David Hemmings’s baffled investigation, all set to Goblin’s unforgettable score. Brace yourself for what might be the master’s finest hour.

Each of Deep Red’s compositions reveals new meanings upon each viewing—and so it’s no wonder that yards of essays have been written trying to get to the center of this film.

A breakthrough picture for Argento. His prior films were stylized giallos with enticing titles but they were, to a certain extent, bound by genre convention. That is, they played by the rules. “Deep Red” was louder, nastier, more violent, more irrational than anything he had done before. It threw down a gauntlet that other filmmakers, including extremists such as Lucio Fulci, would be inclined to pick up in ways that redefined sadistic cinema for better or worse.

An exercise in the extension of suspense, DEEP RED is pure alchemy, transmuting spaces into death, camera moves into murder, swathes of color into madness. Argento is at the top of his powers here, brilliantly orchestrating his actors through the frame like dolls in a toy slaughterhouse, making no moral or clinical distinction between the dying and the living, between killing a man and composing a song, between unearthing a secret and slicing a neck.

Hva sier folk?

  • Stefan Drees's rating of the film Deep Red

    One of Argento's most remarkable films. The work with the colours, light and shadows is incredible, the camera movements around people and through corridors, but also the change of perspectives (together with the importance of views) and the close-ups on small things (e.g. toys or the fingers playing on the piano keys) are stunning - like the use of sounds and different kinds of music.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Deep Red

    Argento (once again) contemplates the relationship between the film and the viewer. The image - which holds the secret to the mystery - is innately misleading. As usual, the audience, placing themselves above the work, are sure of what they've seen. But every image requires a context and interpretation. The character - like the audience - must think very carefully about what he saw to decipher the true meaning...

  • Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Deep Red

    Rewatch. A treasure, Argento’s best alongside Inferno, the connective tissue between his gialli and mannerist-expressionist mode. Once the opening credits/music bars begin, the movie *has* you in its insular borghese world. Always loved the dynamic between Hemmings and Nicolodi, and the Villa Scott sequence is a favorite -a specter of art nouveau decadence. Pour a glass of wine, turn off all the lights, and enjoy.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Deep Red

    '14 restoration Incredibly stylistic but narratively challenged giallo from horror master Argento. Visually the film is truly stunning with its use of colour, editing techniques and camera movement. The story however and its eventual silly conclusion are quite wanting.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Deep Red

    Style over substance? True... but it does still have substance. Argento just doesn't announce it. Scenes like the arm wrestling scene and Hemming's interactions with his drunk/closeted pianist friend tell us a great deal about these characters. Deep Red is also rooted in the revenge tragedy plays of old literature. Just here, mental breakdowns and unjustified revenge are instigated by already-broken minds.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Deep Red

    Le style Argento est brillant, une sorte de pré-De Palma. Dans version "anglaise", HEMMINGS parle tour à tour anglais et italien, très bizarre .... La musique composée par Goblin reste captivante. The Argento style is brilliant, a kind of pre-De Palma. In the English version, HEMMINGS speaks English + Italian, and this makes it strange. Music composed by Goblin still very thrilling.

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film Deep Red

    Don't settle for youtube, director's cut only. David Hemmings solves a mystery via the unleashing of images?! I'm sorry if you're not a fan of BLOW-UP, but this can't not be an homage to that scene (I know, I just recently mentioned that scene, it's brilliant). Then De Palma, obvious BLOW master, licks this like an ice cream cone for the likes of Dressed to Kill, etc. References aside, IMO, Argento's masterpiece.

  • Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Deep Red

    Visually sumptuous, masterfully suspenseful, and superbly atmospheric. This is one of the best horror movies I've ever seen, and my first Argento (though it won't be the last). The soundtrack is great too and totally fits the film.
