After witnessing a brutal murder, a pianist is unsuspectingly pulled into a complex web of mystery. "Deep Red is also one of the few films that contains no poor or even mediocre acting. Each performance is top-notch, right down to the bit parts. The level of talent on display here is phenomenal, and something that Argento would not match in later films. The strong performances definitely contribute to the encompassing nature of the film; despite the surreal visual experience, the characters are so rooted in reality that it is almost impossible not become part of that world for the running time."
