32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 2: Deep Red

Deep Red

For tonight’s second feature film in the parade of 32 Days of Halloween, we’ve grabbed a giallo film from Dario Argento: Deep Red. Its original Italian title was Profondo Rosso and it’s also known as The Hatchet Murders. A music teacher witnesses a murder and decides to investigate. As the saying goes, hijinks ensue.

One of the things I love about this film is the cinematography by Luigi Kuveiller. The use of POV shots, the jump cuts between things, lingering mad tracking shots. It’s also filled with the 70s soundtrack goodness of Goblin, which cannot be denied.

We showed the trailer before but now we can share the full burrito. Enjoy.

P.S. David Hemmings, the lead actor, played the role of Airwolf‘s creator. There’s your trivia for today.

Previous feature films that fell into the second night had a bit of a blood theme. A bit, anyway. First we had Nosferatu, then the original Wolf Man, followed by Blood Tide and then finally last year we had Blood of Dracula’s Castle.

Where to Find Stuff

The film’s available on DVD and Blu-Ray from Blue Underground.
