The Black Museum Presents:  Deep Red in 35mm

Special thanks to NCSeventeen for providing the film print!

“Beyond horror into total terror!” screams the trailer for Dario Argento’s classic giallo DEEP RED, a true triumph of Italian horror that turns 40 this year. The film follows a British pianist (David Hemmings) in his attempts to solve a mysterious murder of a neighbour he witnesses while living in Rome. Joining forces with an Italian reporter (Daria Nicolodi) in a relentless search for clues, the pair must avoid tending up victims themselves as they get closer to uncovering the dark secret that lies at the heart of these bloody crimes, a web that includes a haunting children’s song, a strange doll and a seemingly deserted villa.

Dario Argento is considered one of Italian horror’s most masterful directors and DEEP RED may well be his most iconic work, a film that manages to combine his usual stylishly rendered violence, kinetic camerawork and object fetishism with one of his most engaging stories. Add in a brilliant score by Goblin and you have one of the finest slasher/mystery/thrillers of the 1970s. The Black Museum is proud to present this 40th anniversary screening of DEEP RED, featuring a rare 35mm print straight out of the dirty depths of the grindhouse era plus a Argento trailer pre-show. Don’t forget to bring your leather gloves!
