Deep Red / Inferno

4

Dario Argento at his best, and arguably, worst...

These two gems from Italian master Dario Argento are characteristically contrary – one’s enchanting, the other infuriating.

Starring Blow-Up’s David Hemmings and all but retreading its plot, Deep Red is a spooky, Rome-set whodunit and one of Argento’s best.

Suspiria sequel Inferno, meanwhile, is harder to canonise – a WTF? baroque horror of dazzling set-pieces with dodgy joins.

Inferno’s 90 minutes-worth of featurettes, overshadow Red’s less substantial haul, but both include posters, postcards and An Eye For Horror, an hour-long doc introducing the director’s oeuvre in all its enchanting, infuriating glory
