Profondo Rosso

Dario Argento’s masterpiece “Profondo Rosso” is a grippingly staged giallo, which is definitely one of the best works of the genre director due to its visual component and staging brilliance.

Jazz pianist Marcus and reporter Gianna investigate the murder of a spiritual medium on their own. In the course of their research, they themselves become the target of the serial killer, who brutally pushes aside every witness and possible informant. The story of an old mansion, abandoned for many years, and its bloody history, which is closely interwoven with the murders, play a decisive key role.
