Overview: Caught between the truth and a murderer’s hand!

A break in at a genetics lab leads to a spiralling vortex of bloody murder in Cat O’ Nine Tails, Dario Argento’s 70s Giallo classic.

Strange circumstances surrounding the crime pique the interest of a journalist and a blind crossword compiler whose sharp ears have overheard talk of blackmail. However, all the would be investigators leads soon regret the help they gave as scientists die in front of speeding trains and photographers are viciously slain while others fall to their screaming deaths down elevator shafts in this surreal and nightmarish thriller from one of the acknowledged masters of Italian horror.

As the body count increases, will no one escape the sting of The Cat O’ Nine Tails?

Looks like it would be very good. Not a big fan of subtitles, but I'd try it!

Sounds...messy

Shutterbug said...

A collector's poster and some booklet might not be enough to get people to actually buy the movie. I still think that most people are going to download the movie illegally...

Are you collecting list for militants?
Or something like "clockwork orange" where they drug and play brutal movies to make the criminal hate violence?

I think this is one of the few Argento films I have yet to see, I'm definitely have to check it out when it comes out.

If Blockbuster gets it I might try to rent it, assuming they aren't out of business by then
