Four Flies on Grey Velvet

3

Stalking, blackmail, murder, musicians. This doesn't all add up...

Released in 1971 but slipping into obscurity for over two decades, Four Flies On Grey Velvet is a movie most Dario Argento fans have only read about. The Blu-ray edition, remastered in HD from the original negative, looks set to change that, restoring to gory glory the saga of a pop musician (Dempsey And Makepeace’s Michael Brandon) blackmailed over a bloody murder.

Argento delivers the set-pieces with verve – including a chase through a maze-like park at night and an astonishing slow-motion car crash – but the iffy pacing exasperates.
