The Cat o' Nine Tails is the second film in Argento's "animal trilogy" and for some reason this trilogy is virtually devoid of the crazed, blood-thristy animals of his later films. There isn't even a cat o' one tail to wreak havoc on anyone (see Inferno or Two Evil Eyes for some real cat terror). The mystery unfolds around a gumshoe reporter and a blind old man, a killer is stacking victims and th... read more

"Franco Arno, a blind man and ex-newspaper investigator, investigates a break-in at a medical institute with the help of reporter Carlo Giordani. The 2nd movie that Dario Argento made is a lengthy but enjoyable thriller. While this movie rarely comes up as one of Argento's best, it is still an atmospheric and well-made giallo thriller that is worth a look. The mystery is a well-mounted one with some nice twists to be had. The roof-top climax and shocking conclusion is quite worth the wait as wel"

"First viewing - Oct. 21st Best hidden gem I found myself with some down-time on Saturday afternoon, and really wanted to watch something via Showbox. Both movies I tried to watch failed to play without technical issues, however, so I gave up on Showbox & opened my Prime list instead. Turns out that wasn't a bad thing at all, because I got to watch this underrated film from Argento. There's enough blood to make it horror (Giallo would probably be more accurate really), the story is told in a way"
