This breakthrough hit from Dario Argento turned the world of giallos on their head! Mixing gruesome killings with an artistic flare rarely seen, Dario Argento created a sub-genre of giallos that has yet to be surpassed. In the film, a jazz pianist accidently witnesses a murder and finds himself to be stalked by the killer. He has to sift through a maze of clues to discover who has killed a psychic and stop himself from being one of the next victims. But is he tracking a man...or a ghost? The mystery in this movie is actually decent, but moreso, it's just a beautiful movie. The score from the band Goblin is haunting...the quest through an ancient estate by the protagonist is mesmerizing...and the killings have a tragic beauty to them that has to be seen to be believed. This is by far Dario Argento's best giallo and it's the movie that started his greatest period of films that lasted throughout the 80's. If you're a giallo fan, you can't miss this one. By the way, for anyone that doesn't know what a giallo is, they're a special sub-genre of slasher films that tend to be about a killer that is acting based on childhood traumas that the lead must discover. Usually made in Italy, they're called giallos because they were based on a type of literature that was characterized by cheap books with yellow (giallo in Italian) covers.
