After Marcus discovers the body of a murdered psychic, he joins forces with Gianna, a journalist, to find the killer. But as a mysterious glove-wearing figure leaves behind more and more bodies, the pair realize they must work quickly to uncover the maniac’s identity — or suffer the same fate as the others.

Kelsey Thomas Profile picture for Kelsey Thomas

Between the disturbing children’s song and the incredible score by prog rock band Goblin, the sounds of this film stood out to me almost as much as the sights.

TV Guide Magazine by

Argento here presents a stylish and compelling film that boasts remarkable visuals and an inventive use of sound effects and music.

Slant Magazine by Chuck Bowen

A great horror film about a weak man who, gazing into a vibrant pool of freshly spilled blood, learns just how little he ultimately knows.

Slant Magazine by Ed Gonzalez

Deep Red is a riveting thriller whose secrets carefully unravel via a series of carefully calibrated compositions that become not unlike virtual gateways into Freudian pasts.

The A.V. Club by Keith Phipps

For all its nonsensical qualities, it also contains some of Argento's most hallucinatory images and unforgettable setpieces, as always reason enough to watch even when the usual reasons are nowhere to be found.

Empire by William Thomas

Undoubtedly the finest of Argento's thrilling horrors, this one takes the radical step, for the director at least, to concentrate on a plot that equals the shocking visuals of his other works. David Hemmings is well cast and is given a great script which genuinely frights.
