"Picture yourself stumbling in a high end neighborhood at sunset, in a labyrinth of embassies and historical buildings. Find the right alley, it leads you to a door, a corridor and finally another door, which is ajar, they've been expecting you. This basement dwelling belongs to a friend of a friend. You sit down on a mattress and watch white lines disappearing up some anonymous nostrils while the whole room bathes in an eerie light. A mixture of a brothel and the control room of a submarine.

"16.12. The Cat o' Nine Tails on Argentolta jälleen kerran ihan pätevä mysteeri, jossa on kivaa tunnelmanluontia ja visuaalisuutta ja ohjaajan tavaramerkit jne. Siltikään en saa näistä perusviihdyttävää kertakatselua enempää irti. Eipä taida ohjaaja olla minun juttuni. Koen silti tarpeelliseksi katsoa kaikki miehen isot teokset noin sivistyksen kannalta, joten en jätä hommaa nyt tähän. Viaplay on kyllä palveluna niin uskomattoman surkeasti toteutettu, että en tajua, miten he "

"Toinen katselu. Visuaalisuus sujuu Hiipivässä kauhussa ja morriconelaiset taustat ovat jumalaisia, mutta tarina ei ole ohjaajan tuotannon kärkipäätä. Tiettyyn lapsellisuuteen sorrutaan varsinkin hahmoissa, joista sokean ex-toimittajan kaitsima tyttö on jo puhtaasti ärsyttävä. Fiilistelynä elokuva kuitenkin toimii. Pisteytys horjuu kiikun kaakun kolmen ja ylimääräisen puolikkaan rajalla."

"Home - New Not quite as cinematically adventurous as Bird, but the first act has some nice ratcheting of suspense as a single image is scoured over to find the truth. I love plotlines like this, Blow Up is a personal favourite of mine, and in Argento's hand it's done with style and aplomb. It's only towards the second act that things start to slow down as the main mystery becomes a little wishy-washy and murky. The finale with a blind man and his sword-cane is fantastic though and even if the "

"14.2 Ensikosketus gialloon ja täytyy sanoa, että genre nappasi minut pauloihinsa, pakko nähdä lisää. Juoneltaan Cat O Nine Tails on aika perinteinen rikosjännäri, mutta elokuvan suurimmaksi valttikortiksi nouseekin upea visuaalinen ilme, jossa on paljon keksiläitä kuvakulmia. Tätä kaikkea höystetään erittäin osuvilla ja paikoittain hyvällä tavalla sekavilla musiikeilla, niin on loistavan jännärin ainekset kasassa. "

"The familiar Giallo formula repeats but Argento has great leads (James Franciscus, Karl Malden and Catherine Spaak) and eye for visually stunning scenes. Everything from the wallpapers in the background to the close-ups to the killer's eyes. Great music by Ennio Morricone. "
