Director: Dario Argento | Italy | 1975 | 2 hours 6 mins
This year we close the festival in fine style, with a 40th Anniversary screening of Dario Argento’s seminal giallo masterpiece, rescored live by the legendary Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin, our guests of honour for 2015.
From Dario Argento, maestro of the macabre and the man behind some the greatest excursions in Italian horror (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage), comes Deep Red – arguably the ultimate giallo movie. One night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, Blow Up), looking up from the street below, witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just manages to miss the perpetrator… or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus finds himself ensnared in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems…
Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin will perform their original score to the film, accompanying this very special event. After the film the band will perform a selection of tracks from Goblin and Claudio Simonetti’s extensive back catalogue.
