Deep Red – Dario Argento Mini Film Fest – Screening on June 19, 20, 21!
American Genre Film Archive 4K Restoration
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.

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
