Deep Red

Wednesday, January 31 - Wednesday, February 14, 2024

4K Uncut Restoration! Introduction by Caryn Coleman of The Future of Film is Female on Wednesday, January 31 at 7:00 p.m.!

Anticipating the eerie magic of SUSPIRIA, DEEP RED finds Dario Argento and creative partner Daria Nicolodi presenting a simple, Christmas-set slasher. At least, that’s what it appears to be. But within two minutes, it’s obvious that there’s nothing “simple” about DEEP RED at all. With this movie, Argento perfected the classy, ultra-violent sub-genre that would come to be known as giallo—and also perfected playing audiences like a fiddle. This includes Goblin’s soundtrack, which is a spook-a-delic prog-rock masterpiece that beautifully complements the movie’s dreamy mood.
